I really loved berkeley during ASW. FAcilities look a bit outdated, but the campus and people were incredible. However, most people I met knew they wanted to practice in CA, and a few were headed to NYC. I did not hear of a single person interning or working abroad or anything about global opportunities in general. I want to practice international law ( trade , etc) and also wanted to take advantage of study abroad externships etc. Is Berkeley good for international law? I am also considering NYU
If you check out my last post just a few posts above this one, I say the exact same thing. If you're between NYU and Berkeley, I would pick NYU hands down. I'm still waiting to hear back, but their international law focus is the number one reason why they're my first choice.
I asked the international law journal and a professor I met about international opportunities, specifically trade, and didn't get any conclusive responses. It also seems like the only international trade professor that I could find on their website, and listed on the international law at Berkeley email they sent out, has since moved to USC.
