Course content

The LLM in Public International Law aims to provide you with an opportunity to develop recognised legal expertise within the field of public international law. As a system of law, public international law focuses on the treaties, rules, and conduct governing the relationship between states.

The course will approach public international law from the vantage point of the foreign relations, ideas, and substantive issues that shape its development. You will be able to gain an in depth understanding of public international law as a system of law by not only being introduced to its fundamental aspects, but also by being taught the skills necessary to apprehend the way public international law regulates the state system and responds to changes within the dynamics of that system.

Benefitting from over 50 years’ experience of teaching Law and having the opportunity to participate in the Coventry University Global Leaders programme and our CMI module, there are plenty of ways to develop your skills and stand out in the global graduate market.
