The LLM International Law programme is ideal for law graduates or those with relevant professional experience who wish to build on existing knowledge and develop specialist expertise in international law.

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