NYU professors in LLM Programs

Any suggestions on which teachers are a Must? This discussion is supposed to help everybody with their course choices but I'm particularly interested in the International Legal Studies Program... Anyone with experience?

I just completed the program and I would recommend the following:

- Weiler is one of the best professors I have ever had - take a class with him.
- Donald Donovan for International Arbitration.
- Lowenfeld is not a great teacher but is very smart. He teaches two 4 credit classes during the year, so it is tempting to take a class from him for the credits.
- check out which of the global law faculty will be here next year as they are very good. This year I took International Law and Politics with Koskeniemmi and he was amazing. Unfortunately he won't be back until 2008-2009.
- Although I never took him, Alston is really good for Human Rights Law
- Thomas Franck is one of the leading UN (and PIL) scholars. I did a paper with him and he was very nice. He often teaches a course in the Consitutional Law of the UN with someone else. This year it was ith Simon Chesterman but he is in Singapore next year.
- Paul Van Zyl is supposed to be amazing. I wish I had taken Transitional Justice with him
- For International Environmental Law Richard Stewart is very good. He co-teaches a seminar with Michael Oppenheimer from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public Policy at Princeton which is supposed to be quite good.
- Kevin Davis teaches a good course in Law and Development (sometimes taught by Frank Upham)

Anyway, I hope that is of some assistance. If you are interested in a particular area, let me know and I can let you know if there are any particular professors that you may want to consider.

Good luck next year!

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Dwrokin supposed to be at NYU, or does he spend his time elsewhere as well?
