LSU or Tulane for an international route?

Postby Panama2014 » Sun Jan 30, 2011 9:23 am

I know both LSU and Tulane are virtually the only schools that grant dual degrees in Civil/Common Law

Civil Law predominates the world (though obviously different versions within different countries) while Common law is practiced amongst a smaller list of countries, including the US.

does anyone think the dual degree open doors to the international field?

NO

Want to do French law? Go to school in France. And so on.

I do know a some professors here (Tulane) that can place students into international internships with a few large firms abroad - but these firms are foreign firms and you need to speak/write the language fluently.

However,

You should go to school in a particular country if you want to practice in that country.

No, but if the admissions departments of these schools are paying attention they will use this to hype their schools.

No to the dual degree but Tulane apparently has a good maritime program and many shipping companies obviously deal with international law. Check to make sure there are actually jobs in that area but NO has a huge port.

Want to a Civil Common law degree for international? Look at Mcgill true your talking about Canada and you will be required top speak French but its BCL/LLB is highly regarded and major European firms come to the OCI.
