LLM in International Law

University of Kent, Brussels Schools of International Studies

The process of economic globalisation is placing demands on scholars, lawyers and regulators that traditional legal education is increasingly unable to meet. [+]

LLM in International Law The CIA launches drones to “legally” kill Al-Qaida leaders. An arbitrator rules that anti-smoking policies infringe a bilateral investment treaty. A father is suddenly detained at the airport as his name appears on a no-fly list. After recent decades of rule of law promotion, the need to “legally” harm, detain, profit or pollute has transformed how policy moves are now performed and contested on the world stage. This has elevated the significance of international legal rules for a range of governmental, corporate and societal actors, which all compete to devise legal norms, characterizations and strategies to address global political and economic problems. Thus, international law has become a central domain of struggle across a variety of pressing policy challenges, ranging from robotized military strategies, territorial claims spurred by climate change, the global projection of EU rules, to transnational blacklists. Our LLM in International Law provides a programme of study that responds to increasing complexity in the international legal order; where international law evolves through transformations such as global counter-terrorism, global value chains, and foreign investment arbitration. Our academic staff is at the forefront of teaching, research and practice in the International Law, and our LLM modules encompass subfields that range from European Union Law, Public International Law, the Law of the Sea, and the Law of Armed Conflict, to Trade and Investment Law. In line with the new design of programmess of study at BSIS, the LLM in International Law allows students to choose secondary areas of specialisation from the range of programs offered at the School. Thus, a focused programme of study can be constructed of studying international law in the context of International Relations, Conflict and Security, and others, leading to the award of a LLM degree in, for example, International Law with EU External Relations. The cluster of modules in the International Law specialism can also be chosen from as a secondary area of specialisation for those focusing on other fields, leading to the award of, for example, an MA degree in International Relations with International Law. Finally, the Kent Law School is a top-15 UK law school renown for its critical style of teaching, where you learn more than just the black-letter law: we want you to understand how different legal regimes came about and how they may be interpreted, challenged or possibly changed. This is complemented by the real world advantage of doing your LLM in the capital of the European Union; mere hours from the International Court of Justice in The Hague, the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg, and the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. Key facts Duration: Standard programme: One year full-time or two years part-time Extended programme: 18 months full-time or three years part-time Start: September or January. Aims The aims of the LLM in International Law are to: Provide a postgraduate qualification of value for those intending to pursue a career in the field of international trade, business or regulatory affairs; provide students with detailed knowledge and a high level of understanding of a range of specialised subject areas, and develop more general communication-based skills of value in the search for appropriate postgraduate employment; Provide students with sound knowledge and systematic understanding of the legal structures, institutions and principles underpinning efforts to regulate the international flow of goods, services, and capital; Ensure that students acquire the methodological skills and conceptual tools necessary to understand and evaluate the interplay of law and social, political and economic factors in the structure of the global economy; Encourage critical awareness of the operation of international economic law in different contexts, especially as regards issues of distributive justice; Encourage the production of original and evaluative commentary that meets high standards of scholarship; Ensure the development of critical, analytical and problem-solving skills that can be applied to a range of legal and non-legal contexts; Ensure the development of skills of academic legal research, particularly by the written presentation of arguments in a manner that meets relevant academic conventions. Structure The LLM in International Law is offered in both the Standard (90 ECTS) and the Extended (120 ECTS) Programme format. The Extended Programme allows students to broaden their knowledge and experience within the programme by taking more options whilst at the same time affording them a greater opportunity for internships. Students can also benefit by taking parts of the programme in Canterbury as well as in Brussels. To be awarded a standard LLM in International Law, students must take 6 taught modules, the methodology module 'Fundamentals, Dissertation and Research' and then submit a dissertation on a topic in International Law. For the extended programme students must take an additional 3 taught modules. Modules The programme is divided into three parts. The first part consists of compulsory modules that introduce students to key theoretical, methodological and philosophical foundations of the discipline. The second part covers optional modules (electives), while the third part of the programme consists of the dissertation. In keeping with the aims and objectives outlined above, the programme is designed so that students develop a knowledge of the theoretical and philosophical debates in the discipline, have access to their application in specialised modules, and develop a capacity to utilise these in their research project, the dissertation.
