International Law as a Profession

The International Law as a Profession series offers the opportunity for students to hear a practitioner’s insight into the field of international law and into life beyond the University. The series invites international lawyers from a variety of backgrounds and specialisms to share their experiences and offer advice, and aims, as a result, to give students the information they need to make important decisions about the next steps in their own careers. Past speakers have included Nils Melzer (UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, Geneva Academy Human Rights Chair and Professor of International Law), Angeline Welsh (Barrister, Matrix Chambers), Joanna Dingwall (former Solicitor in a leading international law firm), Joanna Keating (International Development Team, Scottish Government) and Paul McKell and Neil McDonald (Legal advisors, Foreign & Commonwealth Office, London).
