Programs

The law department offers a wide range of courses designed to provide students with the intellectual and analytical tools to intervene critically and effectively in the global policy debates, by confronting their societies as policymakers, practicing lawyers, judges, academics, activists and international civil servants. These courses are incorporated in flexible curricula, allowing students to pursue advanced studies in specialized areas on the basis of their own academic and professional interests, including: international human rights law; Islamic law and Middle Eastern legal systems; gender studies; law and development; international economic law; and business regulation. The curricula are also flexible in that they allow alternative admission options to accommodate students’ preferences and constraints.
