I am a recent graduate from a Californian University (UC Davis) with my bachelors degree in International Relations of the Middle East and Spanish Language.

I have gotten into a program in Ireland (At the University College Cork) For an LLM in International Human Rights. I'm very interested in pursuing this, but want to make sure that my degree will be beneficial to me, when I don't have a JD/LLB.

I'm not necessarily interested in practicing law, but would like to work in the non-profit sector of Human rights' or for international organizations on this topic. I would not mind living in Europe after I receive my degree, but am curious as to how it would transfer to the United States as well.

Can anyone tell me if this would be a practical move for me? Will the degree have much value without an initial law degree? How would that transfer back to the US/to other EU countries?
