Concentration Profile: International Law and Organizations

This post is the twelfth in an on-going series highlighting SAIS concentrations.
In the latter half of the twentieth century - and continuing into the twenty-first - the growth of global trade, increased awareness of human rights issues, and more interest in environmental issues have all contributed to the growing importance of international law.
Ruth Wedgwood, SAIS professor and director of the International Law and Organizations concentration at SAIS, discusses some of the challenges facing international law today.

The learning experience for international law students goes beyond the classroom and internships.  The International Law and Organizations Program has an active luncheon speaker series, featuring policymakers, diplomats and international lawyers involved in current negotiations. The program sponsors an annual student trip to the United Nations in New York for high-level briefings, and in recent years the program has organized several international trips as well.
