Getting Involved with the Center for International Law

The Center for International Law provides students of New York Law School with opportunities to become actively involved in and learn more about international and comparative law. Below is a listing of programs sponsored by the Center for International Law:

  • Student Affiliates: Students are encouraged to join the Center to develop their interests in international law. Under the program, students will receive guidance in structuring an appropriate curriculum. Students are also invited to attend lectures organized by the Center and participate in other activities.
  • A career in international law: The Center for International Law provides career information and resources in the areas of international and comparative law.
  • FACEBOOK: Our Facebook page provides interesting news and information on international and comparative law, and also updates on the Center’s activities.
  • LINKEDIN: Our LinkedIn page lets you join a group to network with other New York Law School students and alumni interested in international and comparative law.
  • C.V. Starr Summer Stipends in International Business Law: Through a generous grant from the Starr Foundation, the Center for International Law will grant summer stipends to a limited number of students to pursue summer internships in the area of international business law.

  • Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition: is the largest moot court competition in the world, and New York Law School has long participated in the Jessup competition. It is open to 2L and 3L students only. For the 2019-20 competition, our faculty will select the members of the team. For more information about the competition, click here.

Peter Phillips (and with counsel from Adjunct Professor Barry Appleton) handles the selection process for this competition.
