Concentration Tracks

 

The IBL Department offers three concentration tracks to its students. Under this system students earning an education specialty receive focused training to prepare for a specific career path. They are awarded a certificate confirming the chosen concentration track upon successful completion of academic requirements.

The concentration tracks are as follows:

 

1. International and Environmental Law Track

 

International law, also called public international law or law of nations, is the body of legal rules, norms, and standards that apply between sovereign states and other entities that are legally recognized as international actors. The main role of international law is to promote global peace and prosperity. Environmental law addresses the effects of human activity on the natural environment. Environmental laws play a huge part in protecting humans, animals, resources, and habitats. Without these laws, there would be no regulations concerning pollution, contamination, hunting, or even response to disasters.
