Apparently they've never heard of this guy! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_E._Lawyer
Seriously, this is why people say that TLS is snarky. Jesus, just keep making the same damn joke. It was funny the first time, not so funny this time.
If anyone has an opinion that does completely dovetail with the majority then here come the jokes.
Wanting to work in international law is not the same thing as wanting to be president or an astronaut lawyer or the first person to pogo across Russia. Lots of people work in international law. It is probably only slightly harder to get a career in international law than it is to become a professor. So it's hard but it's not ridiculous.
Here is two second google search for some:
I'm bored so I'll stop.
If you're so sure this is a viable career option, then why do you need the approval of TLS? Just do it.
I agree with JazzOne. If we are all wrong, and you are so sure you are going to practice "international law", then why do our opinions matter?
As everyone has already said, this is stupid. You don't go to law school to do international law.
You have to go to a top school, get recruited by a biglaw firm with offices in multiple countries, become the best in your area of specialization, and then work for your firm in domestic and foreign offices. That is international law.
