As a public institution, with a mission to serve the community, Berkeley Law is distinct from its elite peers. As the interdisciplinary, internationally-focused center at Berkeley Law, the Miller Institute for Global Challenges and the Law serves not just the law school and campus communities, but also endeavors to serve the international community. Our global perspective and highly collaborative approach to advocacy and scholarship raises the profile of Berkeley Law as a renowned center of research and policy development that fosters change and also prepares Berkeley Law students to effectively respond to the international dimensions of legal problems. As part of the University of California, Berkeley, the Miller Institute maintains superior access to resources of talent, interdisciplinary collaborations and world-class scholarship.
