This highly selective program unites a J.D. degree with a one-year master of laws degree (LL.M.), combining in-depth scholarship and publication with fellowship activities, including academic colloquia and funded internships, as well as the possibility to apply for competitive NYU-funded clerkships or fellowships at such international organizations as the International Court of Justice and the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. Students may apply to become IILJ Scholars with their admission application or in their second year at the Law School. Students formally enter the four-year program in the third year of law school. Graduates will have strong preparation for future careers as international law scholars, as well as for other specialist international law vocations.

See IILJ Scholars Program for more information.
