ยป International Law Certificate

The Chapman University Fowler School of Law offers an emphasis program in International Law, in which highly experienced faculty members instruct students on a comprehensive scope of global legal concerns, from immigration and human rights to energy security and intellectual property. Students who complete the International Law program requirements will receive a certificate and transcript notation.

Lawyers can expect to work in an increasingly global environment, facing legal issues that span national borders, and servicing clients whose interests and concerns are multinational in scope. Lawyers that have a proven familiarity with public and private International Law will possess the skills and credentials to compete in the global workplace. The International Law Certificate Program also complements Chapman University's commitment to preparing its students to be global citizens.
