International Law and more..


g.syl

Got admitted to Fletcher (MALD), NYU and LSE (LL.M.), in addition to some other not-so-popular-ones. Hehe. Still waiting to hear from CLS.

I got app. 75% tuition waiver from Fletcher, nothing from others. But the total cost for 1 year at NYU or LSE comes up to 2 years at Fletcher, so that shouldn't play such a major role.

I'm mainly aiming to study international law, but not interested in the hard-skill approach, would appreciate some inter-disciplinarity (that's why I applied to Fletcher, too) and a holistic approach to things. I'm after a career in international law. What's your guess? Which one do I choose? Are my career chances impeded if I got for Fletcher's MALD instead of the NYU/LSE's LL.M.?

Thanks..

Congratulations. They are about the same quality wise and sellable. If you go to Fletcher you can sell the diplomacy angle and would get a short at firms active in international relations aspect of law (state and border disputes), with the LSE you can sell the financial and European angle, hence, will have a short with the likes of Clifford Chance or Linklaters, highly likely their UK office. With NYC your best bet will be USA-focused firms . Decide what you want to do.
