Course content

Many students wish to acquire a general knowledge of law and legal regulation without specialising in any particular area. The LLM course allows you to do this by studying a number of international law modules in areas such as business, human rights and public international law.

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

This course builds on knowledge and expertise within the Law School and complements the existing range of masters courses offered in International Law and International Business Law. The course allows you to study a number of international law modules available on our special routes and thus offers an opportunity to study, and specialise in various areas of Public International Law, Human Rights and International Business.

If you choose this course you could benefit from:
-An in-depth understanding and analysis of international law through the study of a range of contemporary modules in areas such as public international law, international human rights law and international business
-Extensive guidance on research, study and writing skills together with research design and methods, in preparation for writing assessments and researching and submitting your dissertation
-A range of contemporary international law modules to allow specialism in international diplomatic relations, human rights law, business law, corporate governance and environmental law
-The study of legal subjects and research and academic skills alongside home and EU students and a wide range of international students, thus gaining a rewarding and varied academic and personal experience

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

Courses are regularly reviewed and updated to reflect new developments and the requirements of the profession, together with the needs of industry and new legislative and other changes.

The mandatory modules on the programme provide basic research skills and methodology and tuition in the core substantive legal areas:
-Research Skills
-Research Design
-Dissertation
-International Human Rights
-International Law in the Contemporary World Arena
-International Business Law

The dissertation will be studied in semester 3 and most mandatory modules are completed in semester 1, although it is possible to study some in semester 2. The optional modules, from which you choose two, supplement the mandatory subject areas and allow further specialism:
-International Environmental Law
-International Corporate Crime
-International Corporate Governance
-International Criminal Law
-Gender and International Human Rights
-International Trade Law

Optional modules are generally studied in semester 2, although it is possible to study some in semester 1.

HOW WILL THIS COURSE ENHANCE MY CAREER PROSPECTS?

The LLM provides you with a valuable and broad knowledge of international law and affairs which could result in career opportunities in various employments, such as companies, government and state agencies and non-governmental organisations, either as a legal adviser or in a non-legal capacity.

Some students specialise in Business, Diplomatic Relations or Human Rights Law as lawyers both at home and abroad, while others have gone on to work for international organisations in a non-legal capacity in the areas of international human rights, the environment and for local and national government agencies. This course can also be an excellent preparation for further degrees and research.
