Founded in 2014, the Transnational Law Institute (TLI) at The Dickson Poon School of Law is an interdisciplinary research and teaching centre with a particular focus on transnational and comparative law, legal theory and jurisprudence, collaborative research and legal education.
The Transnational Law Institute functions as a catalyst for border-crossing research and teaching collaboration in a wide range of fields - ranging from company law to family law, from human rights to refugee and immigration law, from legal sociology to transnational commercial arbitration. Encompassing legal fields normally associated with public law, transnational law builds bridges between public and private, domestic and international law.
The Institute hosts a number of research and teaching initiatives, including the first Transnational Law LLM, which has been welcoming students since 2014. For more information on the Transnational Law LLM and how to apply, visit King’s Online Prospectus.
