I could tell you that in my opinion you should change the field - there are no opportunities in Human Rights, except probably some NGO's where the salaries are not so high. The international organizations recruit mainly people from "hot jurisdictions" such as Turkey, Russia, Poland, Ukraine and anyway, the exams for such places are very seldom. In addition, the law firms don't have a practice in Human Rights; very rarely corporate files have issues regarding the ECHR.

It depends how you see human rights. If you are talking about ICCPR etc, then you are porbably talking about a very limited field that most private practices would not deal with. With the Human Rights ACt in the UK, more cares are coming before the courts based on the ECHR. I would have thought in that situation you would need to think about UK domestic law and human rights rather than an international human rights focus. Other areas, such as immigration education or employment law, are also affected by human rights mostly non-discrimination. These are likely to be less highly specialist than practices looking at HRA, but are also less directly human rights driven and an EU law background may be just as much use.

There are heaps of jobs in NYC (Human Rights Watch, Center for Constitutional Law etc) but they are mainly internships and poorly paid.
I am not sure about Scotland.

Am in the same position; I am doing human rights law at LSE: am really worried about ploughing so much money into next year and not having a good job to be able to pay back my debts; is an LLM in human rights law from LSE really gonna produce great opportunities?? I want to start in NGOs (anywhere in the world) as a researched/advocate - can anyone give me advice on this?
