Q: 

What is the international law regarding refugees?

A:  I believe you are right but unfortunately I can''t find a definitive reference to it. Obviously there are ways to get around it though particularly by coming through countries which don''t uphold these laws and expectations. Hopefully someone else will come along with some good references. The case can be made by the refugee, that since australian troops are part of the force in afghanistan. In effect the Australian government is the cause for their refugee status. There would be no need for them to move if war was not in their country. That war was intiated by western countries , such as australia when they chose to enter afghanistan. Thats what gives them the right to travel half way across the world to australia to claim refugee status. Because Australia went...

Q: 

Is there any way to do a LLM in international law in europe without a bachelors degree in law & instead econ?

A:  I am a little confused by your question, is your objective to be a qualified lawyer or do you just want to do it for academic purposes? I note that you use the words ''European school''. Remember that unlike the USA or Australia Europe is a continent but it is not a country. It is made up of many countries, each with it''s own requirements and practices. I don''t really know about the rest of the continent but I am a British and have an LLB so will answer from this perspective. If you just want to do it for academic purposes then the short answer is yes. London Met and Edinburgh university for example offer masters in international law and you can apply even if your bachelors degree is not...

Q: 

I will eventually get a law degree with a concentration in international law-what should I get my undergrad in?

A:  I am a paralegal that works in a construction litigation office. Please do NOT get a political science degree. They will do NOTHING to help you in law school or in international law. Many of the successful attorneys I associate with on a daily basis has their undergraduate degree in the area of law they are practicing in. For example, my supervising attorney has his degree in Engineering and was a practicing Engineer prior to law school. This helps him immensely in the construction litigation area and it gives him an edge that many other attorneys just don''t have. My other supervising attorney had his undergraduate degree that qualifies him as an Architect. In the...

Q: 

What kind of international laws apply for sexual content on a website?

A:  Some one is going to be thinking of you as a sexual predator, those are the types of laws that regard talking with ‘children'' about sex on the internet. You had better take some classes regarding the subject matter or consult a professional, or both, rather than asking for advice on Y/A. Your walking on a slippery slope....

Q: 

Under international law is the punishment less for genocide by assimilation than it is for genocide by murder?

A:  While I agree that when members of different ethnic groups occupy the same living space, assimilation is normal. However, when government purposefully creates those conditions it qualifies as genocide. There is no punishment for this even though the results are more likely to result in permanent extinction than just mass murder because it claims more victims. The imposition of unrelenting white guilt (beginning in school) qualifies under section B. The massive immigration and socially-enforced multiculturalism is occurring in only white countries and clearly qualifies under section C. The question then becomes who is responsible. Who is it bragging about whites becoming a minority in this country while promoting the policies that are causing it? There is no genocide by assimilation....

Q: 

How many years are needed to become an international lawyer or get a career in international law?

A:  You will need 4-5 years for your BA and then another 2-4 for law school. A doctorate in international relations would also help a ton (and earn you a lot more money), but would cost you about 5-8 years more. Are you aware of the current status of the field of law? Before you invest a lot of time and money into that vocational field, I suggest you do more research first. You can begin by doing a SEARCH here on Yahoo answers regarding the current status of the field of law and becoming an attorney. (The news is not good.) I agree with the previous poster, but I would personally recommend that you hold off on the PhD until you have experience. Many employers would be...

Q: 

Does America have the right to ignore international laws and carry out their military invasions, torture and imposing laws on other nations, (that U.S law is above all other laws)

A:  Does Seb12345 have the right to ignore advice of AnswerBank and persist in writing his total comment in the question title box? Probably not, but O well; nothing we can do about it. The difficulty I have with this question, irrespective of the actions of America, is that I do not accept the concept of international law. Although it provides a lucrative income for so-called '' academic lawyers '', the fact is that a law can only be passed by a sovereign legal body with powers to enforce that law and impose any sanctions decreed by legislation against non-compliance.There is no supra-national legislature in existence to enforce the behaviour of one country vis-a-vis...

Q: 

What do you think makes an international law firm successful?

A:  Having lots of clients. Having a good team of lawyers and professions on your firm. A positive attitude towards your clients, and a good source of help. Plenty of connections, and confidence in your cases. I hope this helps!...
