Center for International & Comparative Law
mory Law’s Center for International and Comparative Law explores the interaction among international and domestic legal systems of the world from various perspectives, such as politics, finance, trade, crime, human rights, religion, sexuality, family, the environment, immigration, tax and labor. International law, both public and private, cannot be understood without a working knowledge of comparative politics, history and culture. By tapping into the University’s rich and vast resources, Emory Law encourages an interdisciplinary and experiential study of international law that equips you to do more than practice. It prepares you to challenge and change the world.

International law is not perfect. It has flaws, but in the end it is useful for the peace and security of the world. ... The world is small. The international community needs to create a certain model ethos that honors the legal systems of the world. I want to instill respect in the minds of our students for that effort.
Johan D. van der Vyver I.T. Cohen Professor of International Law and Human Rights and faculty member of the Center for International & Comparative Law
