Institute students are strongly encouraged to participate in Institute and law school-sponsored programs, as well as to become involved in professional organizations focused on international law. Many opportunities exist for students to expand their knowledge of international law and to begin creating a valuable network of colleagues in the field. The American Society for International Law, the International Law Students Association, and the International Law and Practice Division of the American Bar Association are a few examples of organizations in which students can further their professional development.

Interaction with Institute alumni and other practitioners provides students with invaluable resources, leading to externship and future employment opportunities.
