I am really interested in global studies and international relations. also recently became interested in the field of law. This sparked my interest, and after wanting to study engineering for a while, I decided to change what direction I want to take in college. #international-law #law #law-practice

Pursue your current interests in international studies, and also speak to your adviser about pursuing a career in law that focuses on international matters. If there is a law school associated with your university, find out about any international law courses and see if you can sit in on some classes to see if it interests you.

Of course, you would need to attend law school. Look at competitive law schools and begin to review their curriculum to see if there are international law subjects, clinics or summer internship programs that may relate to international law. And ask around to see if by networking you find people in the field that can offer you more targeted advice.

Ms. Keating has given you very good advice. The University of Michigan Law School, a wonderful institution, prides itself in its international law programs. Here is a URL to the MLaw Global page. You will probably need to cut and paste it into your browser. https://www.law.umich.edu/mlawglobal/Pages/default.aspx

Also, never underestimate the value of military experience. If you play your cards right, you can get help from the government to attend college and/or law school in return for a commitment to start as a military lawyer (after the usual basic training and possible deployment). You will be on your way to becoming an international lawyer, or so I would think. And you will get a lot of responsibility early in your career. Good luck.

All law schools offer the same basic legal education. We all take the same courses in the first year of law school. By years 2 and 3, you can begin to customize your schedule and enroll in courses that interest you. If international law is your specific interest, it is very important that you attend a law school that has a heavy emphasis in international law. Although you cannot "specialize" in a particular law in law school, each law school has something special to offer its students. For example, Baylor is known for turning out great litigators. You will want to pick a law school that has a panache and program for international law, so that you can enroll in as many courses as possible, as well as find great connections with law firms that practice international law. There are a few great ones out there. Good luck with your search!
