Students interested in international law can construct a program at Cardozo that is rich in experiences and rewards. Combining our curriculum with any number of our various experiential opportunities—such as clinics, international externships, fellowships, and study abroad programs—helps prepare students for global practice. The Cardozo faculty is bolstered each semester by visiting professors who come from countries throughout Europe as well as Israel, and a growing number of alumni work in major international cities, including London, Beijing and Tokyo.

Educational Objectives: A Cardozo legal education is characterized by a deep commitment to the substantive, theoretical and practical skills necessary for today’s practitioners while developing in its students an awareness of weightier issues of justice, equity, and the intersection of law and society.  In addition, Cardozo is keenly aware of the increasing globalization of the legal profession and how critical it is that lawyers have facility in dealing with foreign legal systems and legal cultures. Cardozo’s international programs support the full range of this educational mission while giving students a variety of options from which to choose—academic and practical; short- and long-term; summer, fall and spring.

Cardozo’s international programs provide students the opportunity to develop the research, communication, problem-solving, character and interpersonal skills that lawyers need.  Traveling with their Cardozo peers, faculty and staff—and often meeting alumni from the countries they visit--affords them an unparalleled experience to develop their networks and cultivate mentoring relationships.  Engaging in the international arena takes students outside of their own environment and asks them to consider firsthand how society, culture and history intersect with legal issues in other places. In so doing, Cardozo’s international programs prepare them well to become creative, compassionate lawyers with practical skills and substantive knowledge who can also wrestle with the complexity that exists in any kind of legal arena.

With options for semester-length, summer, and intensive short-course study abroad programs, Cardozo students can enjoy the flexibility and academic creativity that are hallmarks of a Cardozo education. We welcome your inquiries about our international law programs.
