The Institute

Temple Law School’s faculty created the Institute for International Law and Public Policy to promote the study and understanding of the relationship between international law and public policy. Under the leadership of its Directors, Professors Jeffrey L. Dunoff and Peter J. Spiro, and with the energetic support of Temple faculty and administration, the Institute has undertaken an ambitious and wide-ranging program of activities to create an intellectual environment conductive to the exchange of ideas and the production of significant research and scholarship.

The Institute hosts innovative international legal conferences and roundtables, sponsors a Visiting Scholar Program, organizes several lecture series, and hosts outstanding international legal jurists and scholars as part of its Distinguished Visitors program. It also sponsors the International Law Colloquium, open to students for enrollment for course credit, as part of which scholars from other institutions present scholarly works-in-progress on cutting edge issues of international law.
Institute events are designed to support and enrich an intellectually vibrant community of students and faculty interested in international and comparative law issues at Temple University Beasley School of Law.
