Does American live up to its reputation (US News) for having a good international law program, or is it just #56?

Generally speaking, specialty rankings appear to have little weight on placement, from everything I've heard. 

So American may well have excellent professors, but it's not clear how this would affect national placement.

On the other hand, American is a respected program in the D.C. region, so that may obviously be helpful.
