The Center for Law and Global Affairs is the focal point for the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law’s interdisciplinary engagement with international and transnational law. The Center supports innovative research and scholarship, develops courses and experiential learning programs, designs and manages international projects and engages in outreach with academic, policy and community partners. The Center works cooperatively with other schools, centers and programs at Arizona State University and with local, regional and national organizations. As the world becomes increasingly interdependent, state and non-state actors – from corporations to grassroots movements – manage governance and power in new ways. These changes are occurring within a rapidly shifting context defined by multiple challenges including environmental degradation, emerging conflicts, technological innovation, mass migration and shifts in commerce that require innovative approaches toward regulation, legal regimes and social order.
