    How should I structure my personal statement if I'm thinking about taking Law or Politics/International Relations?


    Talk about Public International Law in an academic context - all the various ways that it has affected and shaped policy and international relations and then frame a discussion around a key, but vague, issue. Google "Public International Law textbooks" and try to find an introductory one online - should give you more of an idea of the kinds of topics covered. Something related to the Law of Armed Conflict or the Responsibility to Protect would be an excellent way to bridge the gap between those two social sciences.
