Course content

The University of Sunderland is an excellent place to study law: our research in law is rated as ‘internationally excellent’ in the latest Research Excellence Framework, and we are ranked second in the UK for Course Satisfaction according to the Guardian University Guide 2014.

As national governments, multinational corporations and other global organisations work together and come into conflict with each other, there is a clear demand for legal professionals who understand the nuances of international law.

This course will enhance your understanding of the complex frameworks of international law-making and governance. You’ll investigate and apply the theories, principles and rules of international law, and graduate with the knowledge you need to develop a career in a range of international organisations.

As a University of Sunderland postgraduate student you will have access to excellent law facilities, including mooting and debating, client interviewing and membership of the Law Society. You will also have access to the Sunderland Student Law Clinic, a professionally supervised service, offering free legal advice and assistance to the general public. This, together with organised visits by graduates now working as solicitors, barristers and other law professionals, will assist you in developing the professional networks you need to advance your career.
