LLM with focus on Human Rights & International Law


LSCH

Hi Guys!

I wanted to ask if you know about the reputation/strength of different universities in Human Rights & International Law. I'm hoping for a later career in international organizations. My personal options are (although this question is open if others want to enquire on other programs):

-Georgetown
-NYU
-Columbia
-UCLA
-UC Berkeley


I know that NYU, Columbia, and Georgetown are well known in these fields, but I was wondering if anyone knows if UCLA and UC Berkeley have good programs and opportunities in these areas as well (I'm attracted to these programs for their location and size).

As of yet, I have not been admitted to NYU or Columbia.. so if my decision comes down to Georgetown, UCLA and UC Berkeley, is Georgetown's reputation in PIL & Human Rights a clear winner, above and beyond the others?

Would really appreciate people's views. I'm having a difficult time with the decision, especially considering the current Covid-19 crisis :(

I have heard really great things from past LLM students at UCLA. I would go over their websites, course list, faculty again and see what's a better fit for you.

Thanks so much for your response!

Yes, I've heard the same about UCLA - I'm actually currently leaning towards UCLA as my choice.
