International public service law varies as much as the populations it serves. With practice settings ranging from intergovernmental organizations like the United Nations to nongovernmental organizations such as Human Rights Watch, attorneys working within the public international arena address questions of diplomacy, state succession, expropriation, and more. Listen as panelists provide descriptions of their practice, work environment, career path, and professional values, and learn how you can become part of these organizations dedicated to public service worldwide. A buffet dinner will be served.
