About

Welcome to iLaw! 

Each year hundreds of students ask Mike and me about how to pursue a career in international law.  Their questions revolve around: Are there really any jobs in international law?  What are some examples of international law jobs?  And, how can I use my time at law school to be competitive for these jobs?

We decided to create this website in order to assemble our combined 50 years of experience with helping students launch careers in international law.

The website includes only information based upon the actual experiences of our students and alumni at the Washington College of Law, Case Western Reserve University School of Law, and the Public International Law & Policy Group.  [link to their webpages]

We aim to debunk the numerous myths associated with launching a career in international law, to provide very practical guidance, and to map the universe of international law and related jobs held by our alumni.  We also include a healthy dose of guidance on professional development for those seeking to enter the field.

We hope you enjoy the site and find it helpful in launching your career in international law.
