Duke or Georgetown


GOJI

Hello, guys.

I want to study international law in LLM. And I was admitted by Duke and Georgetown by now.
Which do you think is better for the students of international law?
I have much information about the international law course of GULC. However, I donot have much about the international law course of Duke Law.

Hi GOJI,

Could you specify what you mean by "international law"? Do you mean public international law? International organisations? Human rights law? This would help all readers answer your questions.

Kiki, thank you for your comments.

I want to do research mainly in the area of international economic law including WTO rules. Of course, Georgetown is the most famous school in this area. However, I respect Professor Joost H.B. Pauwelyn, who teaches classes of international trade and European Union law at Duke, so I am very attracted to Duke. But I do not know other professors. I would appreciate it if you tell me the information about the other professors of the area related with international economic law.

Hi GOJI,

Why don't you have a look at Duke's website? Courses for fall 2005 are already listed there. Prof. Pauwelyn is holding a seminar on "Dispute Settlement in the WTO". Sounds like something you could be interested in. You could also be interested in classes like Business Associations, EU Business Law, Bankruptcy Law (Prof. Schwarz is good, I heard, but I didn't have class with him), Corporate Finance (Prof. Cox is very good, all students love him), International IP (Prof. Reichman has represented the US in various international IP treaty negotiations, his class is great, I took it myself. He has first hand WTO experience, he is often in Geneva). There is also a new seminar in comparative antitrust, but I don't know the professor. One thing counting for Duke could be that they admit far less LL.M.s than Georgetown, but Georgetown is a good school, too, I have nothing negative to say about it. However, some years ago I was facing the same choice (Duke or Georgetown or Chicago), and I chose Duke, and I am happy about it.

Good luck to you, whereever you go!

Hi there Goji. You pose a difficult question, and I don't have the answers. I can tell you that I just finished a LLM at Duke in which I took Prof. Pauwelyn's International Trade Law and Prof. Bignami's EU Law among others. I liked both classes - both professors are quite young and both obviously genuinely enjoy teaching. Their reputations otherwise speak for themselves. Duke is prioritising international and comparative law and has just recruited another noted scholar in this field - check out the school's website for details. I suspect you would enjoy Duke very much. Email me directly if you want to chat further pnaismith@ozemail.com.au

Thank you, all.
Finally I decided to go to Duke Law.
It was very difficult decision for me, but I am coming to love Duke every minute.

I just graduated from Georgetown's LL.M. (I admit not in international law). I would say go to Georgetown over Duke. There is a brand new international law building/library at Georgetown. Plus, numerous international law jobs are in Washington, DC - not Durham, NC.

Good luck, CJS
