Fletcher LLM vs Georgetown LLM


creature

For public international law, which one is better and why?
I know that Fletcher is not ABA-approved hence if one wants to give a bar exam then it would not be possible to do so. But if that is not an issue, which one realistically would be best for someone contemplating a UN or international NGO career?

Thank you.

I think Fletcher would be better because its LLM has clearly a focus on public international law and diplomacy, while the LLM at Georgetown has a broader perspective. Fletcher is very prestigious in the diplomatic field (such as the UN), but Georgetown is also great, so there is no bad choice between those two! :)

Firstly I should note that I am an LLM student at Fletcher.

As you allude to the fact that it is not ABA approved matters little with Fletcher as everyone is studying public international law and many people envisage working in an international capacity afterwards where US admission is not required (only one person this year is from the US). In any event for many countries, the rules are being relaxed such that your LLB may be sufficient in order to take the bar exam - although a lot of study is of course required beforehand!

Fletcher has an incredible array of courses, not only in public international law, but also in diplomacy, development, economics, management, finance etc which you can take during your LLM. This is particularly appealing in the international law field where your studies often cut across different disciplines.
