Certificate in International Law Studies

Top 7 Certificates in International Law Studies 2018/2019

After students complete a bachelor’s or master’s degree, they may want to become experts in a narrow subject. Certificates provide a detailed look at such an area. Most students can complete this program of education in a year.

What is a certificate in international law studies? International law studies look at the international legal order to give students a better understanding of the emerging global economy. This type of education could include lectures, discussions, projects and workshops. Of course, the exact curriculum can be different at each school. For example, some schools may require students to take such courses as international dispute resolution or international financial services law, while others require courses similar to international taxation, comparative law and immigration law.

This internationally focused education prepares graduates to work in an increasingly global world. The cultural assessment, communication and creative thinking skills gained can make students more competitive applicants. These skills can even improve their personal lives.

Students often want to learn more about the cost of a certificate before committing to a program. However, the school, its location and the program can greatly affect tuition. For an estimate, applicants may need to contact a university directly.

This certificate can prepare students for a wide variety of careers. There is no cookie-cutter path after graduation because the opportunities often depend on the other education and previous work experience of the graduates. Some students may even choose to further their education rather than join the workforce. Some graduates use this education to become international lawyers, government officials, academic researchers, professors, judges and consultants.

Where can you earn this type of certificate? Many schools around the world have either on-campus or online courses you can enroll in. Ready to learn more? Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
