International Criminal Law and International Human Rights Law are both very topical subjects, with issues such as detention for terrorist-type activity dividing opinion amongst politicians, lawyers and the public and frequently making the headlines.
The UK is a centre of excellence for the study of both and is well-known for the activism in this field.
