IIEL's reputation in trade, financial regulation, arbitration, tax, and transnational business stems directly from the scholarly contributions of our faculty.

Our faculty members are leading scholars and thought leaders who routinely participate in the highest-level policy discussions in each of the core fields of international economic law. Faculty at the Institute of International Economic Law (IIEL) include prestigious appointees and advisors to a diverse array of global stakeholders, including U.S. and foreign governments, multilateral organizations, central banks, parliaments, embassies, and the private sector.

Their contributions to and close involvement with the day-to-day work of the Institute distinguish us from other centers and institutes in the international economic law field. IIEL faculty scholarship appears consistently in law reviews, think tank policy pieces, op-eds and Congressional testimony. Through their contributions, our faculty help shape national and international economic policy-making from the nation’s capital.
