The International Programs e-newsletter is a YLS community bulletin that highlights events and opportunities relating to international, transnational, and comparative law issues. While not an exhaustive catalog of campus offerings, we hope it serves as a resource to help students navigate opportunities that may be of interest. Below is an archive of the past year's e-newsletters.

In addition to numerous opportunities within the Law School to engage with international law, Yale University offers an exceptional array of programs and initiatives that draw students, faculty, and staff from across campus and disciplines.
