Given my preferences, is it reasonable for me to consider law school? And does it matter which program I pick or the geographical region in which the law school is based?

A few foreign jobs may be fine with a US JD and US license. These exceptions include some foreign offices of some large US law firms (and even then, many typically prefer or require a local license as well) and international organizations. Both of these are competitive career paths that require a degree from a top US school.
Also important: the prestige of the school in the country/region where you want to go. Ask around; prestige there won’t perfectly match the T14 pecking order. For example, Georgetown and Berkeley have in some regions greater name recognition than, say, Michigan, NU, NYU, UVA or Chicago.
