The highest judicial authority of international law is the International Court of Justice, and the highest authority is the United Nations. The United Nations is a force unlike any other. They are the most influential body internationally, with the goal to maintain peace and security, develop friendly relations between countries, and achieve international cooperation in solving international problems.

To be an international law attorney, you must have a deep understanding of the procedures and substantive laws in different countries. As an undergraduate, a background in computer science, English, economics, foreign languages, history, government, mathematics, philosophy, and public speaking are encouraged. Confidence in going before court and tribunals in the U.S. and around the world as a defender and prosecutor are essential.

When looking through job descriptions for international law jobs, you will generally, but not always, find requirements like multilingual and litigation skills. The types of jobs in international law go beyond just being a lawyer. There are options such as an assistant or associate professor, head of foreign and international law library, junior legal secretary for international law, and summer clerkships.
