  • Please explore ALL the options available. You could access the International Court of Justice in Prague and see whether there are any opening for you. Or access job vacancies in the UN. Exposure, Contacts made and experience gained cannot be matched!! You could also try the Attorney General's Department. Call and meet the person handling HR, she / he may be able to guide you. GOOD LUCK!!

  • Start with professional organizations in your field, and the local alumni organization from the university you attended.

    Social networking and professional networking are two very different animals
