Why I chose Fletcher: I prefer Fletcher to other law schools in the United States because it enables me to tailor my education to my needs. It is essential for me to broaden my knowledge in diplomacy and develop analytic skills in international law in order to prepare myself in addressing current global challenges. I believe the LLM program in International law will advance the capability I need for my career.

How I first learned about Fletcher: I first learned about Fletcher from seniors I look up to in the office. They had pursued their studies at Fletcher, and explained that Fletcher is a leading school in international affairs. I then searched Fletcher online, and found out that Fletcher provides interdisciplinary courses that integrate law, diplomacy, and economics in its curriculum. To me, Fletcher has the perfect blend of courses to hone its students' capacity both in law and diplomatic studies.
