Are you interested in current affairs? Does the idea of studying international law in the most vibrant city in Africa appeal to you? Do you want to further your studies in a vibrant and dynamic field of law?
In an increasingly globalized world, it is no longer sufficient to be familiar with domestic law. Whether you are interested in the prosecution of war crimes or in global warming, the LLM in International Law offered by the Faculty of Law of the University of Johannesburg offers you a chance to specialize in fields of the law which are not only interesting but also increasingly useful and relevant. The one-year course takes an interdisciplinary approach and assesses international legal questions from the perspective of international law as well as from a regional African perspective.
