Course content

In a competitive job market a Master’s Degree can help you stand out from the crowd. Studying for an LLM will enable you to engage in deeper study and engage in critical discourse in the legal subject area. This course is ideal for those who want to work for international organisations, NGOs and governments. Graduates have included lawyers and civil servants from countries such as the Gambia, Kazakhstan and the UAE. Examples of dissertations submitted by students in this area include a critical appraisal of the international legal framework for nuclear disarmament, the principles of sovereignty and national self-determination in international law, the doctrine of self-defence under the UN Charter and under customary international law, as well as topics relating to international criminal law.
