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.
The University’s RAE rankings and reputation of the Academic Staff and high teaching standards were influential in my decision to come to Nottingham. In addition the presence of the Human Rights Law Centre attracted me to the programme. Apart from the excellent academic culture at the University, it is also famous for its diverse student life and quite correctly boasts of a beautiful campus.
My one year at the University was a true learning experience. I can confidently state that in this one year I have gained professionally, academically and personally. The standards were set high from the very start, with a completely different style of teaching then where I came from. The academic excellence of the faculty and the emphasis they place on seminar style teaching bought out the best in me and my fellow students. The class composition was truly international with almost all students being natives of diverse nations making me aware of laws pertaining not only to UK and Europe but also to Malaysia, the United States, Brazil, Taiwan, Indonesia, India, South Africa and many more nations.
I am now Senior Programme Assistant with the Prisons Reform Programme, Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative in Delhi, a position which daily tests the knowledge I gained from undertaking the LLM programme.
