Updated: 02-27-2024 | Reading Time: 3 minutes

Out of the many subfields of law, international law stands out as a multidisciplinary academic subject given how it differs from state-based legal systems. Students will explore how rules, norms, and standards can be recognized as binding between nations and apply this knowledge to a broad set of international domains such as diplomacy, war, trade, and human rights. Career prospects fall into many different areas and categories ranging from traditional legal work to humanitarian work in non-governmental organizations and trade relations in international companies.
