Am I a good LLM candidate? Where should I apply?

Hi everyone!
I would like to pursue a LLM degree in International Law/Human Rights in North America or Europe.
I have an 3.2 GPA average from my Brazilian Law School (I went to a federal public university here) and just graduated this past March.
I was an intern at the Law Clinic at my school for a year and volunteered at the State Defender's Office for a year as well.
Right now I am a post-graduate intern at the D.A. Office.
During law school I was a TA in international law, and was a part of 3 study groups, one of them in international law.
In addition to English (which I started studying when I was 5), I also speak French and Spanish and have lived abroad in Paris for a year.
I would like to know what more can I do to improve my credentials to try and get an LLM from a top school, or if I don't have a chance at all.
Also, I would like to know which schools would be better suited for me.

Thank you in advance!

About LLMs in Europe:

For international law, I'd recommend either a university in the Netherlands or the Graduate Institute in Geneva. You also have other good programs in Europe but the best ones are likely to be located there in my opinion.

For Human Rights, I think Essex in the UK has a good reputation.

I don't know about Canada but if you want to go study international law in the US, you should try to go to Columbia or NYU (and maybe a couple of other schools but I think these two are considered the best American schools for international law - the US does not really have a good reputation in international law otherwise). Don't know about Human Rights though.
