Professional Opportunities

Our students represent diverse geographic regions and come to Fletcher with legal experience in a variety of sectors, including from private international law firms, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, diplomatic missions, multinational corporations, and think tanks.

During their year of study, LLM students have the opportunity to work with the LLM program staff and Fletcher’s Office of Career Services to develop a customized approach to a career in international law. Our Office of Career Services offers an ongoing professional development series, career trips to Washington, D.C. and New York, and on-campus sessions with employers such as the United Nations and State Street Corporation.

Participating in the Fletcher LLM facilitates significant networking within the legal community. Our High Table series and capstone retreat afford students opportunities to meet a wide variety of international law practitioners and scholars. Visitors to the Fletcher LLM program often shed valuable insight on careers in international law, and sometimes prove to be valuable connections for students hoping to work in a similar field.
