The University of Arkansas School of Law encourages students to cultivate a global perspective on legal scholarship and the practice of law through its international programs. These courses help students to gain insight into a world that is more interconnected than ever before. International understanding helps students recognize influences on national and international policy and can enhance students’ appreciation of specific topics such as human rights, energy, the environment or business.
Students with expertise in international law or culture have a world of opportunity beyond traditional legal fields and may wish to consider placements with the United Nations, the European Union, the International Court of Justice or international non-governmental organizations.
