Please Help Me Decide: Cornell v Georgetown v LSE v Fletcher v IHEID


naman2000

Hello everyone,

I would really appreciate your advice!

I am a final year law student from India and I have been admitted to the following courses:

1. LLM (General) - Cornell
2. LLM (International Legal Studies) - Georgetown University Law Center
3. LLM - London School of Economics and Political Science
4. LLM (International Law): Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy
5. Master of International Law (2-Year): Graduate Institute Geneva

I wish to pursue an Master's degree in order to eventually work in the ESG sphere. The issue is - my interests in the field are as diverse as Ecocide and Carbon Credits.

While the soft law side of International Law is my passion (and my Undergraduate Major, with Honours), by way of my family background (one of India's fastest growing ESG-oriented law firms) I have been able to witness a lot of legal work related to PPPs, Project Finance, Power Purchase Agreements, et al in this sector.

My eventual goal is to work with a law firm that offers preferably both (e.g- A&O or Clifford) or either (e.g Volterra Fietta for IL, or Fenwick Elliott for ESG-orienter Construction Law) of these practice areas for at least 5 to 7 years before returning to my family practice (where I can pursue a range of practice areas without being chained to a specific team) - but I don't know where and how to start.

By god's grace, money is not an issue. The principal concern here is to find a course that offers the subjects, faculty, location, and the mentorship + career services opportunities that shall allow me to achieve my goal.

P.S: I am currently awaiting my decisions from NYU (for the LLM- Int'l Legal Studies) and the Geneva Academy (LLM- IL and Human Rights) and I am also in the waitlist for UCBerkeley and UPenn.

All the schools are excellent - I’d recommend that you have a look at the courses, activities and opportunities offered so as to make sure you find a program that matches your interests in the best possible way. Good luck!
