International Studies & Law


The Academy of International Studies and Law has two strands.


The International Studies strand offers courses and experiences designed to help students grow as “global citizens” well versed in political systems, languages, cultures and economies of nations around the world.  Students will interact with government and private agencies, foreign embassies, and businesses as they gather the skills and prepare to make contributions which positively impact our world in the areas of conflict resolution, economic issues and the environment. 


The Justice, Law and Society strand is designed for those students who wish to study and work in the many fields where knowledge of legal systems is required.  Courses address the Constitution and Bill of Rights issues, the study of forensics, and criminal and civil law.  Students will examine contemporary legal issues at they work with local private and public legal professionals as well as Blair debate and mock trial teams. 

There are many areas where the fields of international studies and the law overlap, and classes such as International Human Rights and other scheduled events provide exposure to issues of law in the spheres of international diplomacy, business and human rights.
