Course content

The LLM International Law is specifically designed for those candidates who seek a broader based qualification, which embraces all of the options offered on the LLM programme involving any aspect of law that is of an international character, whether public or private.

This is reflected in the diversity of modules on offer, which candidates may choose to study and which draws on existing specialisms in international commercial law, European law, criminal justice, human rights and general public international law.

Given the choice of options available to candidates across a broad range of subject matter, this degree may be of particular interest to those who wish to advance their careers in any number of professional settings, from private practice to government service or academia.

The aim of this degree is to deliver a well-rounded international lawyer who has benefited from exposure to a range of private and public international law sources and who has gained a greater awareness of the possibilities for applying their knowledge of international law in future practice areas.

Since its introduction in 1987, our LLM programme has continued to grow in popularity and prestige. Offering a wide and diverse range of over 50 options, the programme now attracts some 150 to 180 candidates each year, from more than 50 countries, confirming its status as one of the leading and most exciting LLM programmes available.
