Course content

Interested in criminal law? Want to focus your legal skills towards working at an international level? Then LLM International Criminal Law is perfect for you!

We cover the key concepts in enforcing international criminal law, looking particularly at crimes falling under the jurisdiction of international criminal courts and tribunals. This includes genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and aggression.

You'll learn valuable practical skills to become a specialist international lawyer, including conducting mediation and negotiation in an international law setting and acting as an advocate presenting legal arguments before an international forum.

There are no exams to worry about - assessments are made through essays, presentations, advocacy exercises and professional portfolios. The research project is a significant piece of research which students will undertake with support from supervisors. The focus of this project must be on an area of their specialisation and must be completed within 15,000 words.
