University of Pittsburgh

International Law Courses

The list of courses below will satisify as electives for the International & Comparative Law Certificate.  If a JD student plans to cross register for a course at another Pitt graduate department (i.e. GSPIA, Public Health, etc.) and the course has at least 25% of it's component on an international topic, please submit a request for approval along with the course description to CILE.  Upon review, CILE will determine if the course will meet the requirements and be approved to satisfy the elective requirements.  Any other Law course that is not listed below may be approved on a case by case review (i.e. a "W" course where a paper is written as a comparative approach).  Please contact CILE with the details for the request and approval. 

Please note that a seminar course cannot satisfy an elective requirement if it has already satisfied the Upper Level Writing Requirement component for the certificate.
