last year I studied the IHR program at Northwestern; prof. Scheffer is simply the best professor teaching in his field in the whole country. you can't go wrong under an academic perspective.

Thank you for the info Stagisita11! The academic perspective is what matters for me the most....and don´t really mind the weather though...
The only thing that keeps me thinking is the course offering in UCLA for International Law...

I guess the scholarship might be the best reason to choose UCLA over Northwestern. I don't know whether I would have gone to NU with a scholarship (let's say 10+K) from UCLA...
Regarding the courses taught at UCLA, I'm sure you'll find the same courses among those offered by NU. Last year I had to pick among dozens of courses related to international public law...the only regret is that I didn't have the time to take them all...

great experience overall, I have no doubt about that. NU Law facilities are great, the location is awesome, the student body truly international, and professors were outstanding. I already miss my days there... good luck with your choice!
