Course content

The emphasis of the LLM is on teaching law by reference to the key themes shaping developments in contemporary legal practice and in global governance. Significant examples include efforts towards the regulation of global tech firms, diplomatic and legal initiatives for tackling climate change, and the nature and impact of global trade disputes. The LLM, by considering theoretical approaches alongside practical considerations, will be of benefit and interest to those interested in legal practice or scholarship in fields such as commercial and trade law, medical and human rights law, and humanitarian and international law. Teaching and learning is designed to be consistently forward looking and our research led approach means the LLM will be characterised by our engagement with contemporaneous developments and unfolding problems and prospects. In a world that is witnessing significant shifts and challenges, at the national, regional, and global level, the study of law in light of key themes in governance is timely and important. National jurisdictions are adapting to address the rise in global non-state actors, such as web-based tech corporations, while global efforts at international challenges such as climate change and disaster response are demanding new forms of coordination and regulation. With equal regards to trade and to theory, practice and policy, the LLM draws together the various flashpoints in the global political economy and international legal framework to identify trends and patterns, and to consider the significance of law and policy in our contemporary societies.
