The Yale Law School Center for Global Legal Challenges is an independent center that bridges the divide between the legal academy and legal practice on global legal issues. It provides a forum where academic experts and students regularly interact with public and private sector actors responsible for addressing global legal challenges. By bringing these communities together, the Center aims to inject new ideas into legal policy debates and grow a new generation of lawyers with a sense of their capacity and responsibility to use international law, foreign affairs law, and national security law to address real challenges facing the nation.

Our Mission

The Yale Law School Center for Global Legal Challenges aims to promote an understanding of and innovate approaches to legal issues of global importance.
