This essay examines how international law teaching at Washington University School of Law in St. Louis has evolved over the past 150 years. It concludes that the school's international outlook and emphasis on quality legal education have helped it to develop into a truly global law school that educates lawyers who can confront today’s pressing global issues. Noting the law school has adapted its curriculum in response to historical developments in international law and globalization, the essay remains optimistic about Washington University School of Law's future, and that of its students.
