Careers in International Law
Expertise in any of the various International Law areas can be valuable in many types of law practice. Career Services is an exceptional resource for students and alumni seeking employment in any area, and can help them identify prospective employers, as well as how best to leverage any International Law coursework, study abroad experience, or externship. Many law firms regularly represent clients in international business transactions and international disputes, but employers who would value expertise in other areas of International Law can be more difficult to identify, so we have produced a detailed List of Employment Opportunities in Public International Law, International Human Rights, and International Criminal Law. In addition, many IGOs and NGOs operate out of the Netherlands and are listed in the Guide to International Organizations in The Hague.
Over the years many Lewis & Clark alumni have found employment doing international work. Below are some representative alumni profiles.
