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.
