In my little bit of research, FIU looks like a fine school and I would have no real complaints about going there. It's a newer law school, but it's one of the only ones that I actually believe when they claim to be poised to make big strides in the rankings over time.
I'd say going for international law is the weakest link here. But, if you know that's what you want to do and you're willing to stick with it, I'd say give it the go. Worst case, it doesn't pan out and you go into gubment work.
I'm going more for immigration law... which is kind of a subset of international law...
Immigration law actually doesn't sound like a half bad idea, especially given the growing attention that it has been getting lately. My only concern with it would be that it would be like Constitutional law in that it would be interesting, but hard to make a living in if you work outside of the government, but I don't really know for sure on that.
