(International) Arbitration: which school(s)?

Postby gellisc » Thu May 31, 2012 2:23 pm

Hey everyone. I'm starting to research schools hardcore as the application process is just right around corner. Im taking the oct. LSAT. I have been pondering the exact area of law that I would want to practice, as I was advised that since I am an "older" student (31), it would be advisable for me to "know" this before I start the process. I have a BA in International Studies/Economics and am hoping that that helps some. Given my personality, interests, strengths/weaknesses etc. I believe that International Arbitration would suit me quite well. (also considering Intl. bus transactions, advertising law, m&a). So my question is: what schools have a solid reputation in arbitration (I guess formally, alt. dispute res.) that could help lead me to a reputable law firm?

You need good grades from top schools for this. Pretty much in line with any other specialty in which there are bound to be many more interested parties than spots.
