It's not a bad plan to do a non Law related degree if you are more interested in IR - you can always convert to Law at a later stage

There is no need to do IR to know more about international public law in order to work in international public law. It's sufficient to have a law degree and take a specialist master's in international public law, or skip the master's altogether.

You can do a bachelor's in IR first, of course.

Do you know what most public lawyers do for a living?

More than half of all judicial review cases brought relate to immigration and asylum. Other major areas are homelessness and housing; community care, prisons and town & country planning.

Aye, public law ain't all that.

See this judgment of a tort case (right to privacy coming from ECHR): https://www.bailii.org/uk/cases/UKHL/2003/53.html

I mean, do you really wanna be doing stuff like this all day? And this is a more interesting one.

That is a vastly more interesting one, one that went all the way.

We have never across the practice got a case beyond the Court of Appeal although one of our constituent firms once got one to the House of Lords before our merger.

who then had a little firm in York ran the case you have linked to.

This is perhaps a more typical case

He is a bit of a character and I hope he got the lady he had hoped for.
