I guess this could be your starting guide:

http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/international-law-rankings?int=991208

But again, you might want to check which field of international law you are really interested in because international law is vast. Some schools specialize in human rights, others in international trade, or others still in arbitration, and the list goes on. But they're all under the field of international law.

Check the courses and faculty as well and see which school has the ones that match your interests. Hope that helps.

All of them are good with international law generally, however you should know what specifically you're interested in. I would just go by which part of the country appeals to you more.

Hi Onefish,

I beg to differ on your point. NYU and Columbia certainly have stronger programs and faculty in international law, and their NY location (UN HQ, UN agencies, permanent missions, ICRC, IOM, international NGOs, international firms) makes the learning even more interesting. But of course, I do not discount the fact that GULC has a strong international law program and that DC (WB, IMF, IDB, ICSID, embassies, NGOs, international firms) is certainly a good location to practice this field as well.

But personally, given the options presented in this thread, I am more inclined to choose GULC.

Hello, blue, what I meant is "Georgetown has the most famous faculty and strong reputation in International Law (among three univerities, Berkeley, GULC and Michigan), after all "Icarusf" are discussing these three ones.

Living in US for a year is also a very important factor in deciding where you want to study - living conditions, climate, people, the structure of the everyday life is of great importance for getting good grades, enjoying your time there and being fully motivated to do your best. Think through this one carefully :D
