Sheffield Law School launches exciting new LLM programme

The Master of Laws in Conflict and Security Law is an exciting new joint programme that offers you the opportunity to study at two prestigious institutions, the University of Sheffield and the University of Utrecht, undertake a flexible programme of study, and participate in seminars and other activities held by experts from both the UK and abroad.

A unique degree whereby public international law in the area of conflict and security is dealt with in a comprehensive way by covering the law on collective security, peacekeeping law, international humanitarian law, the law governing international terrorism, international criminal law and arms control law. 

This course combines expertise in these areas drawn from both Universities. The first semester from August to January is taught at Utrecht University and the second semester from February to July at Sheffield University. The degree builds on compulsory courses taught at Utrecht, and culminates with a number of optional courses and a research dissertation at Sheffield.

The University of Sheffield LLMUtrecht University is in close proximity to a significant number of international institutions or similar bodies operating in the area of peace and security in the Hague, in Brussels, Geneva and Vienna. Theory and practice will be combined by involving individuals from these institutions, especially in the first semester. 

Students will have the benefit of expertise as well as resources from the two institutions. The Course Directors are Eric Myjer from Utrecht and Nigel White from Sheffield, who between them edit the Journal of Conflict and Security Law, published by Oxford University Press.
