Course content

Many students wish to acquire a general knowledge of law and legal regulation without specialising in any particular area. The LLM course allows you to do this by studying a number of international law modules in areas such as business, human rights and public international law.

This course builds on knowledge and expertise within the Law School and complements the existing range of masters courses offered in International Law and International Business Law. The course allows you to study a number of international law modules available on our special routes and thus offers an opportunity to study, and specialise in various areas of Public International Law, Human Rights and International Business.

If you choose this course you could benefit from:

  • an in-depth understanding and analysis of international law through the study of a range of contemporary modules in areas such as public international law, international human rights law and international business;
  • extensive guidance on research, study and writing skills together with research design and methods, in preparation for writing assessments and researching and submitting your dissertation;
  • a range of contemporary international law modules to allow specialism in international diplomatic relations, human rights law, business law, corporate governance and environmental law;
  • the study of legal subjects and research and academic skills alongside home and EU students and a wide range of international students, thus gaining a rewarding and varied academic and personal experience.
