Studying abroad opened my mind and allowed me to mature and grow as a person, and intellectually.

Overview

The Postgraduate Diploma in Global Legal Studies is an innovative programme that provides students with a world-class legal education, which is grounded in an appreciation of global social, economic, and cultural contexts and challenges.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Global Legal Studies imparts just those skills.

The programme facilitates career pathways in law, business, politics, non-governmental organisations, and policymaking bodies at the national and international levels. In addition, certain modules on the programme are run in partnership with leading law firms, offering students the opportunity to apply for work placements at the end of their studies.

·        Global Business (including International Investment Law; World Trade Law; Funds Law);

·        Social Justice and Human Rights (including International Human Rights Law; Disability Law & Policy; Gender, Sexuality and the Law);
