LLM Specialization in International & Comparative Law
The Law School offers a wide variety of international and comparative courses each year, especially in Pacific-Asian law, taught by distinguished visitors as well as our core faculty. Most colleagues teach and write on international/comparative issues, whatever their fields, and many colleagues specialize in international or comparative law, particularly relating to Asia and the Pacific.
During their LLM year, students may choose to focus on public international issues or private law and business law issues as they plan their programs. If they wish to concentrate on Pacific and Asian law instead of earning the general international and comparative certificate, they may do so. LLM students may also take advantage of courses and programs offered by the University’s School of Pacific and Asian Studies and the world-famous East-West Center, which serves as a magnet for top scholars and researchers from the region.
