Global Research Seminar 

The GRS is an innovative teaching model for exploring the global nature of today’s most complex legal issues.

These intensive research courses build toward the overseas field research visit when students and faculty jointly meet with primary stakeholders on key topics in public and private international law. 

Through the GRS, students: 

  • Gain substantive expertise on the issue being studied;
  • Apply legal research in a real world setting;
  • Engage meaningfully with international senior legal experts, practitioners, and faculty; and
  • Develop highly-sought research, interview, analysis, and reporting skills.

Each year, the GRS addresses a new cutting-edge topic, identified by our faculty as a singular research opportunity for Penn Law students.
