Devika Kamp, 2013, The Netherlands

Why I chose Fletcher: I gained a solid understanding of general public international law while obtaining my first LLM at Leiden University. However, I wanted to specialize further in international human rights law, and humanitarian law. At Fletcher, I get the chance to focus on those specific elements of international law. Additionally, Fletcher offers many courses that allow students to understand the wider context. For example, I am now taking Internal War and Conflict, which complements my previous courses in international humanitarian law.

On the diversity at Fletcher: The student diversity makes Fletcher a truly unique place: class discussions are very lively with people from so many different countries. In my class on Human Rights in the Arab Region, I believe about ten countries of the Middle East are represented. This makes Fletcher a great university to study international law and relations.
