INTERNATIONAL LEGAL STUDIES AT ONU LAW INTERNATIONAL STUDIES

Our international law program is designed to provide you with the training and exposure you need to practice law in the global context. Through our unique concurrent JD/LL.M. in Democratic Governance and Rule of Law, a wide range of courses and activities and the opportunity to study with public-minded young lawyers from around the world, you will receive an education in international legal, business and human rights topics.

CONCURENT JD/LL.M. IN DEMOCRATIC GOVERNANCE

If you are motivated to work in promoting democracy, law reform and development around the world, then our concurrent JD and LL.M. in Democratic Governance and Rule of Law degrees are the ideal choice for you. Beginning your first year, you will take international law courses designed to give you exposure to the needs and demands of countries making the transition to democracy and the rule of law. Unique shared classes and activities enable you to learn alongside our international LL.M. students, who are preparing for public service in their home countries. During each summer term, you will participate in an externship to gain practical experience in the field and generate valuable international contacts. Your first placement will be in international development, law reform or human rights organizations in the United States such as the United Nations Development Programme, CARE USA, Transparency International, Save the Children and the Urban Institute’s International Development and Governance Center. In your second year, you will work with international organizations or governments overseas. Externs most recently have worked in Kosovo, Georgia, Rwanda, Uganda and Liberia. These experiences and contacts will provide you with professional opportunities in law and governance reform around the world.
