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.
