HLS students enjoy learning about international, foreign, and comparative law in a variety of ways — through interactions with classmates who come from over 70 countries, through over 100 courses and reading groups and myriad events on campus, and through the first-hand experience of studying and working in other countries.

A wide range of HLS fellowships provide opportunities for students both during and after law school. International Legal Studies also provides occasional discretionary grants to defray costs for students undertaking independent projects abroad.
