Anglia Ruskin University: International Law

Institution Anglia Ruskin University
Department School of Economics, Finance and Law
Study type Taught


Our LLM International Law will give you a broad and deep exposure to the theory and practical applications of international law broad in subject range, and deep in intellectual engagement.

You will develop your legal reasoning, critical analysis, research skills and independent judgement, learning to critically apply legal discourse to the question of how transnational commercial, political and social interactions are regulated. From this, you will gain skills to critically appraise how international laws are created and enforced.

All of our modules are designed around small group seminar work with tutors and complemented by independent study, allowing you to tackle each issue one at a time and giving you a clear distinction between them.

On our core modules, you will be introduced to the themes that underpin the higher level study of international law, and the advanced research skills you will need to succeed at this level. You will also learn the key principles relating to the interlinked fields of private and public international law, and gain an overview of international human rights and criminal law.

Our varied optional modules will allow you to specialise. You can examine the relationships between the media, creative and communication industries and the legal frameworks in which they operate; discover European law and the synergies between this and international law (for example, at the level of the World Trade Organization); or opt for more traditional topics, such as comparative company law or international arbitration.

At the end of the course, our Major Project will allow you to concentrate on the aspect of international law that interests you most, pairing you with an expert supervisor in the area.

Throughout the course, you will be encouraged to call on your own experience, skills and knowledge, and to recognise your preferred learning style, developing new approaches to your work accordingly.
