The Institute of International Economic Law is the focal point for the study of international economic law at Georgetown University.

It is also one of the leading centers for international economic law and policy in the world.

Originally focused on trade, the Institute now boasts leading capabilities and international renown in a range of areas including investment and financial regulation, tax, business and monetary law. The Institute actively approaches these fields as interrelated and at times overlapping policy spheres that impact how law is devised, practiced and enforced.
