Enrollment in the Institute is limited and the participants are selected on the basis of their academic and co-curricular achievements in college and documented interest in international and comparative law. If a student's application is considered after the completion of the first semester in law school, grades from law school classes may be considered in the selection process.
As space in each class can be quite limited at the beginning of the academic year, students interested in pursuing a certificate from the Comparative and International Law Institute are encouraged to apply to the Institute concurrently with their application to the J.D. program. Providing that space is available in their class, any student of the law school may apply for admission to the Institute after enrolling in the J.D. program, but not later than the end of their third semester in law school. Certificates will be awarded only to students who have completed the certificate requirements by commencement.
There are no additional fees associated with applying to or participating in the Comparative and International Law Institute.
