International Law

Our international law faculty members have deep expertise in a variety of areas, including international intellectual property, international trade law, the global pharmaceutical industry, international human rights, laws of war, international intervention law, Chinese law, law of the sea and international environmental law. They have engaged in coastal management research in Central America for the United Nations, in making medicine available to AIDS victims in South Africa, in the struggle for human rights in South America and in developing a dispute resolution process among Caribbean nations.

Our program includes a wide array of specialized courses that reflect the expertise of the faculty, a variety of externship opportunities — both international and domestic in location — and a certificate program for students interested in international law. In addition, Florida State offers four exchange programs and the longest-standing summer law program at Oxford University sponsored by an American law school. Florida State also is home to the student-edited Journal of Transnational Law & Policy.
