International agreement

Michael Peil, J.D., assistant dean for international programs and executive director of the Whitney R. Harris World Law Institute, looks on as leaders from Utrecht University, Queen’s University Belfast, University of Trento (Italy) and Catholic University of Portugal sign partnership documents officially launching the School of Law’s groundbreaking Transnational Law Program. The Transnational Law Program allows U.S. students to study at both the Washington University School of Law and Utrecht University. Initially, these students will spend five semesters acquiring a solid foundation in U.S. law with an emphasis on international and transnational law from an American perspective. They will then undertake three semesters of study in Utrecht, acquiring an appreciation for European law and enhancing their understanding of international and transnational law. Faculty and students from the other three European partners will contribute to the strength of the program.
