“There were countless informal times when the postgraduate community in which I lived had spirited debates or discussions of topics that pushed me to reconsider my most basic assumptions about law, legal systems, and the world in which we live. This year at Cambridge has been a fabulous, and different, learning experience for me, exposing me to different ways of thinking and also driving me to think more deeply.” — Emilie Aguirre ’12
Applications for the 2013-2014 HLS-University of Cambridge joint degree program are due on January 9, 2013. Please see the ILS web page, “Harvard Law School and University of Cambridge J.D./LL.M. Joint Degree Program,” for more information.
“My studies at Cambridge [as part of the HLS-Cambridge JD / LLM joint degree program]are focusing on international law where my classes cover such areas as left legal critiques and liberal defenses of human rights, the antinomies of WTO law, and the intellectual history of international law from Hobbes and Grotius through to Kelsen and Schmitt. I am also enjoying the opportunity for independent research; I am currently looking at the crime of aggression and the international criminal court and prospects for a progressive international criminal law. The university draws students from around the world and this true diversity of backgrounds makes for an exciting intellectual environment.”
