Course Summary

The LLM Diplomacy and International Law is a flexible and engaging degree that provides a strong introduction to diplomacy, foreign policy and international law. Jointly delivered by our prestigious Law School and the highly ranked and regarded Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion (PPR), it enables you to deepen your understanding of the social, legal, economic and political issues playing out on the world’s stage. Our Law School is home to the Centre for Crime, Law and Justice, the Centre for Law and Society, and the Centre for Child and Family Justice. These influential centres underpin our postgraduate teaching and you will have access to the much sought-after expertise of academics working at the forefront of research into politics, international relations, legal and socio-legal issues.

The pathway for the LLM/MA ensures a duality in the nature of your studies. Core and elective modules from the Law School and PPR and a 20,000 word dissertation enable you to pursue your own interests whilst becoming practiced at looking at issues from different perspectives. The supervising department for your dissertation, and the balance of modules studied, dictate which award you will receive: LLM or MA. Our teaching approach draws upon leading scholars and distinguished practitioners with experience in the field. Your postgraduate LLM/MA degree opens doors to a huge range of careers and provides high-level training for those pursuing careers in areas such as foreign and international affairs, national and international non-governmental organisations, journalism and international business. You will develop: the skills required to critically evaluate cutting-edge research; inter-disciplinary skills; and, analytical and communications skills. All of which are a real boost in any sector and highly prized by employers. The LLM/MA is also an ideal stepping stone to PhD study and academia.
