About the webinar
As an interdisciplinary academic field, Pubic International Law attracts students interested in cross-border issues ranging from international business to armed conflicts and human rights. While International organizations and nonprofits may offer interesting options for an international lawyer, there are law firms and corporate counsels who too are willing to offer jobs at entry level positions to interested Indian students. She is here to take you through a quick tour of all the available options and share some meaty do’s and don’ts, gained out of sheer personal experience as far as seeking employment in the field of International law goes!
