Title: International law
Post by: FLgirl07 on July 30, 2007, 12:05:36 PM
Is anyone studying or intending to pursue international law?  What schools have a good program and how is the curriculum?  What sort of internships are available in the area?

California Western in San Diego has a decent International Law program.  They've got a lot of programs in South America, New Zealand, and at the Hague.

Georgetown Law is well-known for it. I think New York or DC are the cities generally associated.

"It depends" on where and what type of international law you want to practice. For instance, Temple has a strong international business presence in Japan. Many of my fellow students study abroad and then interview for part-time or summer positions once abroad.

If you want to pursue international diplomacy or something government-related, you can intern at the United Nations or work for a foreign government.

Btw, don't you love the answer "it depends?" Sometimes I think my entire law school tuition has been spent learning these two words...

What exactly is international law?  What do people in this field study?
