Course content

This pathway draws on our strength of research in the areas of international law, comparative law and global legal theory. You will develop a multifaceted understanding of how the international system works, but also its key modern challenges and the way law and regulation address them. There will be an opportunity to focus on critical global issues, including the flow of international trade or energy supplies, but also the globalisation of crime and terrorism and the resulting implications for human rights and international development, more generally.
