Law in Contemporary Society
I am interested in the way we organize our society, and to me, that's what the law is all about. I see the law as a conduit of justice, and I think that learning the law will empower me to affect change. I realize that that is just about the vaguest possible answer, but I've given this topic a great deal of thought, and that's really the best I can come up with. I don't want to be a lawyer, at least not in the conventional sense of the word, so justifying why I'm in law school is actually sort of difficult. Frankly, I think that my legal education will make me a more informed and effective individual, whatever I end up doing.

Ultimately I'd like to work in the arena of international policy, specifically in the area of post-conflict peacebuilding and transitional authority. I think public international law is exciting because it is still developing and there are a lot of frontiers left to explore. Post-conflict states are particularly fascinating because they are one of the places where the theory of law meets reality. I am also extremely interested in international trade law and its relationship to poverty.
