International law is an increasingly important field of study and practice. Never before has international law taken such a central position in public debates. The regulation of financial markets, environmental protection, the management of migrations or the prosecution of war criminals are all areas in which international law plays a central role.

International law does not only affect the behaviour of states and intergovernmental institutions; neither is it a discipline of diplomats, academics and philosophers. International law today dominates the activity of transnational corporations, NGOs and individuals, from footballers to victims of human rights violations. As a result, governments, international institutions, NGOs, businesses and law firms are increasingly looking for individuals capable of dealing with complex issues of transnational law.... [-]

In an increasingly globalised economy, almost all businesses operate internationally. Trade, investment and finance cut across national boundaries and are governed by a complex web of transnational laws and regulations. As a result, the demand for professionals with a rich understanding of how law and business operate at a global level continues to grow. This LLM in international law and business offers students with undergraduate qualifications in Law or Business the opportunity for advanced study in both disciplines and prepares them for the challenges of advising companies, governments and other institutions on issues such as the regulation of international trade, foreign investors' rights, and international litigation....

Human rights are central to contemporary politics and international governance. They have become a dominant language of political struggle, in which the actions of governments and other institutions are judged, justified and challenged.

This LLM provides an advanced conceptual and practical understanding of how international law promotes human rights and responds to their violation. The course sets international human rights in their broader philosophical, historical and social contexts, and engages students in an interdisciplinary study of the international legal processes designed to ensure their realisation. It also encourages students to think critically about the limits, ambiguities and contradictions of the international human rights movement.... [-]

This innovative programme examines the complex interplay between law and politics in international affairs. Delivered jointly by the School of Law and the School of Politics, Philosophy, International Relations and the Environment (SPIRE), the LLM provides students with an opportunity to develop critical understanding of how politics shape international law and how, in return, law shapes the behaviour of states in their dealings with one another and with other actors. As will all our postgraduate programmes, the LLM encourages an integrated theoretical and interdisciplinary approach to global governance, where law is studied in its broader philosophical, historical and social context. This approach is particularly suited to those who aspire to work for international institutions like the UN, non-governmental organisations, government agencies or international law firms.... [-]

The world is experiencing an unprecedented environmental crisis. A rich body of international norms and institutions has developed in response to this crisis, attempting to address problems such as climate change, biodiversity loss, deforestation, or transboundary pollution.

This LLM provides students with an opportunity to critically appraise the manner in which international law governs the relationship between mankind and the natural world. The course sets international environmental law in its broader philosophical, historical and political contexts, and engages students in an interdisciplinary study of the transnational legal processes designed to prevent and respond to environmental challenges. The LLM also emphasises the complex relationship between environmental regulation and other fields of law, such as trade or human rights law.... [-]
