Course Summary

A master’s degree in law is a fantastic way for law graduates to develop a specialisation, or for non-lawyers working in related fields to gain a deeper understanding of legal issues. This LLM pathway combines specialist study of international law, with valuable practical training in advocacy, legal practice and litigation skills. You’ll be taught fundamental topics in international law at the cutting-edge of current research, while simultaneously developing the necessary legal skills to apply your knowledge in a clinical context. You’ll also have the chance to diversify your training through extensive module options.

The course is perfect for lawyers and law graduates looking for career development, although all of our LLM courses can be studied by students without a background in law, since you will be trained in the necessary analytical and legal skills. As such, the programme will also provide ideal training for paralegals, journalists, NGO and charity workers, policy advisors, consultants, lawyers, those working in business and finance or anyone who will benefit from a legal education in their career.

Studying an LLM in international law will open up a variety of employment opportunities across the private sector, in international organisations like the UN, WTO or World Bank, and in government or the courts. This pathway contains a strong amount of clinical training, as well as teaching in both domestic and international law to give you a multi-faceted education that that will be highly attractive to employers in an increasingly competitive field. The course also allows you to undertake a work-based project so you can gain practical experience and build professional links, while our renowned Law Clinic enables you to work on real legal cases with local people to enhance your clinical skills while you study.
