The experience of many students studying public international law at a university is: "This is fascinating, but what can I do with it?" This practical and focused guide explores the options available to law graduates, beyond the 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. A Guide to International Law Careers will help with 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. The text - written as a series of questions and answers - is supplemented by practitioners' views and experiences, and the appendices contain concrete information on the most useful internships, short courses, and Master's programs. This practical guide to careers in international law is written primarily for recent law school graduates and students who wish to seek a career in the UK, as well as other Commonwealth countries - Canada, Australia, and New Zealand in particular. A couple of English language career guides have been published in the past, but they tend to be US focused. Also, uniquely, this guide provides a coherent, step-by-step approach.

Russian Approaches to International Law

Category: Law

Page: 290

This book addresses a simple question: how do Russians understand international law? Is it the same understanding as in the West or is it in some ways different and if so, why? It answers these questions by drawing on from three different yet closely interconnected perspectives: history, theory, and recent state practice. The work uses comparative international law as starting point and argues that in order to understand post-Soviet Russia's state and scholarly approaches to international law, one should take into account the history of ideas in Russia. To an extent, Russian understandings of international law differ from what is considered the mainstream in the West. One specific feature of this book is that it goes inside the language of international law as it is spoken and discussed in post-Soviet Russia, especially the scholarly literature in the Russian language, and relates this literature to the history of international law as discipline in Russia. Recent state practice such as the annexation of Crimea in 2014, Russia's record in the UN Security Council, the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights, prominent cases in investor-state arbitration, and the creation of the Eurasian Economic Union are laid out and discussed in the context of increasingly popular 'civilizational' ideas, the claim that Russia is a unique civilization and therefore not part of the West. The implications of this claim for the future of international law, its universality, and regionalism are discussed.
