About Law Schools Global League

LSGL brings together law schools that share a commitment to the globalisation of law and to integrating global law in their teaching and research. The purpose of the League is to promote legal education and scholarly research in relation to the globalisation of law by, among other things, fostering academic debate on the impact of globalisation on law and setting a research agenda for this. The League’s agenda is broad and inclusive, covering all fields of law where globalisation and interdependence are an issue.
