Course content

Ideally suited for those who are interested in specific international law issues or want to work for international organisations, NGOs and governments, this course is designed to develop specialist knowledge of this important, ever expanding, area of legal knowledge.

International law regulates almost every aspect of state law, practice and relations – from human rights, peacekeeping and anti-terrorism to world trade deals, foreign investment arbitration and territorial disputes – with the aim of creating legal norms and strategies to address global societal, political, environmental and economic problems.

Law has been taught at Coventry University for nearly 50 years and enjoys high levels of student satisfaction. You may have the opportunity to network with a wide range of practitioners from well-known organisations, like Weightmans Solicitors, a top 45 UK law firm, The Commonwealth Secretariat or No 36 Bedford Row Chambers (London), one of the foremost family law barristers’ chambers in the country, to name a few and undertake research-based assignments responding to a range of contemporary issues.
