    Hello, I'm interested in SOAS for Human Rights Law. I have around 10 years of work experience with the United Nations, mainly in the humanitarian sector. I'd like to transition to international human rights policy and advocacy, perhaps working for an organization like Amnesty Intertnational. I have three questions.

    1. What is the reputation of SOAS in the international law, development, human rights world? A handful of colleagues at my UN agency have gone there, although for a general development undergrad degree.
    2. What is the employability of students who graduate from there with this degree?
    3. What kind of students attend (I.e. What is their work experience)?

    In addition to a policy oriented, research-based education, I'd like a school that is well connected to the industry, which has well-respectd teachers, alumni networks.

    I'm also considering an LLM at UCL, and am thinking very carefully about which one to choose.

    Many thanks in advance.
