Q: International Law? If you sudied or are studing international law or work in the field, please tell me where you studied and if you enjoy what you do. I am currently a legal studies major hoping to start law school in 2008. I would like to study internaional law while in law school. My current prefferences for law schools are [US] Columbia University, Boston Univeristy, New York University [England] London College, Oxford University [SA] Univeristy of Witwatersrand Law School,University of Capetown, University of Stellenbosch. There is of course the University of the West Indies (both Mona and Augustine campuses). As you can see I don't really care what country I got to law school in as long as they speak english and have courses in international law. I am also intersted in laws on the rights of the child and course in that area. If you have studied or are studying law in any of these schools please let me know what you thought/think about your experience.
A: You are going to have to do some reasearch. For instance, in the UK much of the substantive law is taught in undergraduate courses. In the U.S. the standard courses take up most your time and you get very few electives. Consider an LLM, a post-law school degree offered by some U.S law schools. Don't know much about the other systems but I have found that if you just call and ask to speak to someone like the Dean of Admissions, they would be happy to tell you about the school and the system of education.
