International Law examines the rules and principles which govern the relations and dealings between nation states. The programme allows students to explore the primary sources of international law, including customary law and conventional law as well as treaties.
This programme will appeal to those wishing to pursue a career with an international organisation such as the UN and those involved in the legal and diplomatic relations between nation states.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
The programme will encourage students to understand the relationship between nation states as well as the duties imposed on nations with respect to individuals. Such duties include the right to respect international human rights and the general right of an individual to receive justice to an international standard. The jurisprudence of the International Court of Justice will be examined along with the place and role of the United Nations.
Students can expect to study areas such as:
International human rights law; International law in the contemporary world arena. They can then choose from further options such as:
Children’s rights, criminal evidence and inference, human rights in Europe, international criminal law, international environmental law, law of diplomatic relations, prisoners’ rights, war, law and morality, gender and international law. After success in these modules and in research skills and research design, students proceed to complete a research dissertation on a chosen subject relevant to the programme.
