Comparative Law Association

The Comparative Law Association (CLA) is dedicated to broadening the horizons of law students to foreign perspectives on law. Learning about foreign law and other jurisdictions, helps one understand their own legal system, question assumptions, and spark ideas for new solutions. The CLA aims to tap into the diversity of the international students at Penn Carey Law and their extensive knowledge, expanding the discourse on foreign laws and their interaction with one another. Beyond international students, the CLA is open to anyone interested in learning more about legal issues in other countries or sharing experiences they have gained studying or working abroad. The topics discussed encompass all areas of law and the agenda is defined based on the interests of current members. Events range from informal, low-threshold discussion groups to larger-scale conferences with external speakers.
