What is a BA in International Law? More than ever, companies need lawyers whose knowledge base crosses borders, given that business certainly does. International law encompasses legal transactions related to global finance and business, but it also involves the study of international justice, including such institutions as international criminal tribunals. Earning a BA in International Law can provide the training and skills necessary for you to provide legal expertise or advice to such institutions across the world.

These degrees can give students the opportunity to hone the analytical and writing skills needed to become a successful lawyer. Students are typically exposed to a wide variety of subjects relevant to practicing law and sometimes even have the opportunity for real-world experience through experiential learning.

How much do these degrees cost? Tuition and fees can vary significantly across universities, so it is advisable to contact particular programs to learn more about expenses.

Employment opportunities exist in both private and public law across the world. In a climate where cross-national trade deals are complex but numerous, international lawyers are needed to advise companies and even countries about their obligations and opportunities under these deals. Corporations are often transnational in the modern era, and thus require legal advice from attorneys with substantial knowledge of numerous legal systems. With the importance of international institutions such as the United Nations and war crimes tribunals, those graduates interested in public law or human rights can also find opportunities.
