Students interested in international law have numerous opportunities to gain experience and network with peers with similar interests, including:
Suffolk Law co-founded and participates annually in this international competition in which students negotiate a fictitious dispute between a country and its foreign investor.
Students represent low-income non-citizens facing deportation from the United States.
Clinic students represent Native American tribal governments and indigenous organizations, support their nation-building activities and assist in advocacy efforts.
Experience the field of international legal practice (ILP) through one of Suffolk's four dynamic and complementary internship programs--engaging in public interest and/or private sector practice while earning academic credit. Each of the four programs provides students with compelling opportunities to intern internationally in conjunction with specialized academic coursework designed to bridge the divide between theory and practice.
Students in this full-time, 13-week experience get intensive practice experience during the school year under the supervision of a practicing attorney and a Suffolk Law faculty member. Students are embedded in a public service office or public service organization in the U.S. or around the world.
The Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the world's largest moot court competition, with participants from over 500 law schools in more than 80 countries. Learn more.
