Rights, Gender and International Law
This course provides a comprehensive overview of international law regarding human rights and gender issues, and how these critically important legal subjects impact in the world today. This course balances the theory with the urgently practical, for example, the detatched, academic knowledge of law may be taught through examining difficult case studies which are anything but clear-cut. By doing so, students are challenged to engage with the subject and face the dilemmas of authentic legal practice in the real world. An important part of the course is the writing of a detailed dissertation within the specialism of the student's choice. In the dissertation students prove that you have become an expert in rights and gender law at an international level.
