LLM International Law
The International Law LL.M scheme offers an excellent postgraduate programme for students with in interest in public international law. It introduces them to the structure of the international legal system, its relationship with national law, the sources and subjects of international law, and the law's application to contemporary situations, such as the environment, territory and the use of force. Optional modules will expand on each of these areas, giving greater depth and analysis: on the subjects of the law, such as international organisations and; human rights; different levels of environmental obligations; and terrorism and the laws of war.
The scheme consists of five taught modules and a dissertation of 20,000 words. The taught modules give students a broad range of options for the study of different aspects of international law.
We welcome applications from students holding (or expecting) a good second class (normally a 2:1 classification from a UK University) or equivalent. We do not require a degree in law. However, if you do not have a law background, some additional readings may be assigned.
For those whose first language is not English, a good reading and writing knowledge of English is required. This may be evidenced by having successfully studied at University level courses taught in English, or by achieving the specified level of qualification. The University's basic requirement is a TOEFL score of 600 or IELTS of 6.5, or equivalent.
For full details of the course's rules and regulations, please see the Law School's Prospectus.
