Fortunately, both HLS and CLS at least seem to have a lot of law classes in int'l law, international security type stuff, and you can take electives outside of the law school, so should be sufficient for satisfying academic interests.
Sketchy Alex is sketchy.
Yeah, that's the way to go I think. Idk, I wouldn't want to break up the flow of LS anyways. I'm just going to get the MIA before LS, lol.
If in ref to clearance - Nah, just too many foreign connections.
That makes sense. I think you have a good plan.
I don't even know what type of foreign connections are ok and which are no bueno, because I have plenty, so maybe I should be worrying too, lol.
At least for the US - Having lived in another country, having significant $$$ invested / (inheritable) property in another country, close friends or family who are foreign nationals or living abroad, having travelled on a foreign passport, voted in foreign elections, accepted benefits from foreign countries, otherwise exercised citizenship rights in another country, etc. present major issues. If dual citizenship, you have to be prepared to renounce the secondary citizenship.
I'm going to try to mitigate those factors that apply to me as much as possible but I figure getting clearance wouldn't be realistic for at least a decade or so, if I wanted or was even remotely otherwise eligible for a job that required it.
Fun fact you can have relatives from countries that are considered state sponsors of terrorism, have immediate family who are not citizens of the US, have a family member who may have committed some not so great acts that I will not be disclosing on a damn law school forum and still get a TS clearance.
