A Guide to International Law Careers

Second Edition

By Anneke Smit, Christopher Waters

The experience of many university students studying public international law is, "This is fascinating, but what can I do with it?" While this book in no way detracts from the more intangible reasons to study international law, it is practically focused and explores the options available to law graduates beyond traditional or domestic law career paths. The range of possible careers is vast - from human rights to investment law and from the courtroom or boardroom to the refugee camp - and the book offers a step-by-step approach to considering whether and how to pursue a career in one of these areas. The essential message is that international law jobs are out there and attainable if approached strategically and with perseverance. In this second edition, the text - written as a series of questions and answers - is supplemented by a broader range of practitioners' views and experiences, as well as updated appendices containing concrete information on the most useful internships, short courses, and Master's programs. *** "A Guide to International Law Careers is a book that students will devour. The book is an easy read with clearly written, targeted advice for students who want to "do something" with the international law they've learned in the classroom." -- Prof. Mark Wojcik, International Law Prof Blog [Subject: Legal Profession, International Law]
