"In today' world people, culture, goods, politics, and money cross borders more than at any time in history - and law travels with them. Global law is more than a slogan or a sound bite. National law reaches outside national territory, legal systems borrow from one another, and international law becomes ever more prominent. At CTLS students and faculty from many legal traditions explore common legal problems of global law in an uncommon way. With its emphasis on collaborative work, CTLS provides a unique opportunity to expand horizons and forge new friendships in the setting of a great world city."
