Our LLB programme is a three-year qualifying law degree. The core and optional units reflect the wide variety of approaches to legal research adopted by the scholars in the Law School. There are a number of international law programmes at undergraduate programme including General Principles of International Law, Law and Policy of the European Union, British Immigration, Nationality and Citizenship Law, Transnational Arbitration, International Dispute Settlement, Commercial Conflict of Laws, and Law of the UK, EU and World Trade.
There are a number of postgraduate taught master’s programmes in international law including the LLM International Law, LLM International law and international relations, LLM Law and Globalisation, and LLM International Commercial Law. A range of module options are available on these courses including General Principles of International Law, International Trade and Investment law; Conflict, Force and International Criminal Law; International Human Rights Law, and Maritime Security Law. These modules are unique in their ambition to explore intersections between different legal regimes that regulate a specific subject matter, as well as a range of domestic, regional, and international bodies overseeing enforcement.
