Course content

The LLM International Law programme is designed for those who wish to develop specialist expertise in international law.

This programme gives you the opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of the law in relation to key international subjects. You are encouraged to consider the role of the law in international affairs and to develop a critical understanding of how the law affects all aspects of international activity, from trade and prosecuting crimes, to the use of force in international relations, human rights and protecting the environment.

You will have the opportunity to examine the role and relationships of international organisations and institutions such as the UN, the International Court of Justice and the EU. Programme content is informed by the latest debates and developments in international law and aims to engage students in real-world cases and dilemmas.

A substantial dissertation is required as part of your study, which is designed to enable you to enhance your research skills as you undertake a detailed investigation in an area of your choice.
