I'm an AU alum, and it is very well respected for international law, but I would go to 1) Vanderbilt 2) Fordham, 3) BU and 4) AU if you got in to all of these schools and hope to work in the US. The US firms pay more attention to the overall ranking than the specialties. Working abroad, I can't say, but here, AU is at best a regional school.

I think it depends on where you are from and what your intentions are for your future career. I'm from France and since I wanted to focus on international law, AU was a better fit. If you are planning on automatically working in the US (which for international lawyers it isn't always easy to secure a position), then you should really think about why you're getting an LLM, as it's sometimes difficult for LLMs who have a foreign background 2 jump right into the US legal system.

That said, out of your four choices, I think for international law AU would be the best. Plus, it's in DC which is great for working in international orgs. Either way good luck!
