The Center for Transnational Legal Studies
In 2008, Georgetown also inaugurated the London-based Center for Transnational Legal Studies (CTLS). The Center offers second and third year students a unique, semester-long opportunity to study transnational legal topics in a truly transnational setting. This new academic endeavor draws not only students, but also faculty, from over a dozen select partner schools located in almost as many countries, around the globe. This one-of-a-kind environment creates a truly transnational faculty, which develops and offers a curriculum specifically designed for those intent on transnational careers.
