By some measures the most prosperous state in the United States, Connecticut is sometimes counted as the state that, more than any other, depends on international trade and commerce for its economic success. Many of the nation's foremost industrial and financial companies are based here. Connecticut's capital city, Hartford, is home not only to many of the nation's largest insurance companies but also to the University of Connecticut School of Law.
We eagerly embrace our role in supporting the international standing of Connecticut, New England, and the United States. Though a relatively small law school, UConn Law offers a wide range of classes, seminars, and clinics on international law. These include international business law, public international law, international financial law, and international human rights. Connecticut also boasts a first rate international law faculty known for outstanding scholarship, an excellent student/faculty ratio, a J.D. student foreign exchange program second to none, and two small, well-supervised LL.M. programs open to graduates of foreign law schools.
