Summary

This programme is for individual’s seeking a deeper understanding of the many dimensions of public international law from both a theoretical and practical perspective. As this course has an international dimension it will appeal to students from around the world and at all stages of their legal education and professional experience. Students may have backgrounds in legal practice, in multinationals, in NGOs, government and commerce but all that is needed is a genuine interest in global affairs. Students will be able to choose from International Politics modules as well as getting a rounded picture of law in our transnational world. * Objectives* The specialist Master of Laws (LLM) in Public International Law concentrates on the development of a thorough and critical understanding of Public International Law, the law governing the interaction of states. The last decade or so has seen tremendous challenges for International Law including matters relating to armed conflict, financial and commercial relations, intellectual property and human rights. This programme gives you the opportunity to trace and evaluate some of these practical and theoretical developments against the backdrop of global affairs and students benefit from the practical experience of leading practitioners and academics. Global governance, human rights, the future of the planet and issues of war and peace will be addressed as will the impact of public international law on transnational finance, commerce and trade.
