I was wondering what is enough cause to write a DS:
international applicant, lived in two European and two Asian countries for between 6 months and 3 years each (plus 18 years in home country in Europe).
The DS would essentially be about how international experience / different perspectives could contribute to LS community.
Is that a sufficient topic or does DS only work for American URM applicants?
Thanks a lot for your advice!

The meaning of "diversity" for law school admissions officers is pretty broad. It's definitely not just for URMs. And you should write a diversity statement, yes. But I assume much of what you described in the OP appears elsewhere in your application--your resume, address, etc. So just be sure to make some kind of argument about what the international experience means, you know?
