The experience of many students studying public international law at university is, ‘This is fascinating, but what can I do with it?’ While this Guide in no way detracts from the more intangible reasons to study international law, it is practically focused. The essential message is that international law jobs are out there and attainable if approached strategically and with perseverance.

The range of possible careers is vast—from human rights to investment law and from the courtroom or boardroom to the refugee camp—and the Guide offers a step-by-step approach to considering whether and how to pursue a career in one of these areas.

This is a practical guide to careers in international law. It was written primarily for law students and recent graduates in Britain and other Commonwealth countries—Canada, Australia and New Zealand in particular. A couple of English- language career guides have been published in the past—most well-known is the book published by the American Society of International Law – but they tend to be US focused and, as they are written by several contributors, lack a coherent, step-by-step approach which the current guide offers.
