For the third year in a row, Case Western Reserve University School of Law’s International Law Program was ranked among the top in the nation, with an A+ rating, according to the Winter 2020 issue of PreLaw Magazine, a publication of National Jurist. View the ranking, which was based on the strength of CWRU’s International Law program in several categories, including curricular offerings, concentrations, certificates, journals, clinics, moot court success, and externships, on the electronic version of PreLaw Magazine.

In addition to the ranking, PreLaw Magazine highlighted our international law program. According to the article,  "If you want to delve into [international law], Cleveland is an option. Yes, Cleveland, home to the Cavaliers and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Ohio city is also home to Case Western Reserve University School of Law, which has one of the nation's top international law programs." 

The article goes on to report that "[CWRU] was one of ten schools to get an "A+" for curricular offerings in this specialty. ... Case Western has the largest international law endowment, at $3.8 million. It's the only law school with a foreign policy talk radio program, and it's the most recent American law school to win [the World Championship Round of] the Jessup International Law Moot Court competition."

Further, PreLaw Magazine states, "For students, opportunities abound.  Every year, the school's Cox International Law Center awards more than $60,000 in grants to defray travel and living expenses for 25-30 summer internships, semester externships, and post-graduate fellowships with international organizations, foreign law firms, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations."
