Course content

Study the complexities of international law and prepare for a global legal career. Taught by inspiring, world-leading academics, you’ll gain the skills and knowledge to advance in areas such as international development, international commerce, or international security.

Introducing your course

International law is no longer simply a matter for diplomats and international organisations, but is impacting increasingly on the lives of ordinary citizens. Organisations now have to consider the wider issues of international law, whether in the context of international human rights and conflict resolution, the environment, or in a business and commercial setting. This programme offers an excellent professional development opportunity for those working in, or wishing to move into, specialist areas such as international aid and development, international relations and international security.


Our LLM in International Law is an exceptional opportunity for professional development for those working in, or seeking to move into, specialist areas of international law. We welcome applications from recent law graduates and those with some professional experience who are looking to develop their career.

We offer an exciting and supportive learning environment. You’ll be welcomed into a diverse, international postgraduate community, developing a global network of friends and contacts that will benefit you for years to come.
