(NOTE: I’m no pre-law student so I may not be the best advice). The keyword that stands out here is LAW, so obviously you’d want to do pre-law majors such as political science or justice. Here is a source for great majors pertaining JUST TO law ( https://www.law.buffalo.edu/blog/10_Best_Prelaw_Majors.html ).

I think to cover the “international human rights” aspect of your desired career field is to attempt a DOUBLE-MAJOR, or at least a minor associated with human rights studies. Majors/minors for this field can be humanities, ethics, human rights, etc.

Hope this helps!
