About the Center

The Center for Transnational Law offers a space for academic reflection and practical engagement with international, comparative and domestic law.  The interactions between these areas of law create both conceptual and practical opportunities and challenges which the Center seeks to address.   

Through a series of talks, panels and academic events, international internships and study abroad opportunities, the Center for Transnational Law engages with the events and processes that shape and impact the law both within and beyond our borders.

The unique diversity of the Rutgers Law faculty offers students a deep and complex understanding of the law – whether they go into private practice or public service.
