Public International Law

Public international law covers diplomatic relations and treaties between sovereign states as well as trade relations between countries. Lawyers working for federal government agencies, such as the State Department or the Department of Commerce, or for international institutions like the United Nations or the International Court of Justice specialize in this area. Attorneys at non-governmental organizations (NGOs) also focus on public international law, but often specialize in a particular area such as economic development, immigration law or international human rights. Most public international law opportunities are located in New York, Washington, D.C., or abroad.
