Course content

Providing you with a general public international law qualification, this course can be tailored towards a particular specialist interest such as environmental protection, international trade or human rights.

You will develop a solid grounding in the techniques of arguing and interpreting international law, and expertise in how these elements are put to the test in very different contexts, from protecting the environment, to regulating world trade and humanitarian protection. With over 25 qualifying options, you can choose to specialise in various areas of public international law.

The wide range of modules is delivered by an impressive and diverse array of talented academics. Members of the public international law team at Nottingham have published prize-winning works. Many also actively participate in policymaking and implementation of human rights norms at state and international levels.

We host a regular series of seminars through the International Law Association, which are delivered by distinguished visitors from across the world. Recent seminars have covered developments in refugee law, international environmental law and counter-terrorism.
