At the heart of the Institute’s mission is a commitment to interdisciplinary, non-partisan analysis of the most cutting-edge legal challenges facing economic policymakers. Our work is international, and the breadth of our engagement is continuously evolving.

The Institute of International Economic Law (IIEL) is one of the world’s premier centers for the academic and policy analysis of cutting-edge global developments.  Its aim is to provide students, alumni, policymakers and market participants with the foundation to navigate an increasingly complex regulatory landscape, which now impacts international trade law, tax, currency, banking and securities, intellectual property, and litigation strategies.

IIEL offers conferences and workshops throughout the year connecting NGO leaders, industry executives, government officials, thought leaders and practitioners.  Along with Georgetown’s offering of LLM (Master of Laws) Degrees, SJD (Doctor of Juridical Science) Degrees, IIEL’s programing serves to prepare students and the wider global community with the skills and insight to Innovate, Engage, and Lead.

IIEL Faculty regularly engage with policymakers, directly impacting the agenda. They are frequent speakers, panelists, appointees and advisors to a diverse array of global stakeholders, including U.S. and foreign governments, multilateral organizations, central banks, parliaments, embassies, bar and other professional associations.
