Welcome to the Center for Transnational Law

Law is a global phenomenon.  From commercial transactions to family relations, human rights to taxation, the practice of law is increasingly influenced by foreign and international legal cultures.  Understanding the implications of national and domestic events is at the core of the Rutgers Center for Transnational Law’s work. 

The Center provides a platform for the study and practice of international and comparative law. It is an academic hub for scholars, practitioners, advocates and students who have a shared interest in a wide variety of international and transnational legal issues to discuss and disseminate their work.

Learn more about the Center here.


Rutgers Law School offers a wide array of courses on international, comparative and transnational law.


The Center’s affiliated faculty write and teach on legal issues of both domestic and global concern and reach.


From study abroad programs to summer internships, students learn about and work with international and transnational law.
