International Law and Governance
An important objective of the LLM in International Law and Governance programme is to provide you with skills that will enable you to thoroughly analyse and interpret legal sources, literature, and cases, and to research and formulate an independent opinion on international legal questions. You will also learn to clearly present your findings both orally and in writing to international legal specialists, to participate actively in academic debate, and to apply this advanced academic knowledge in public international law in a professional context. The LLM in International Law and Governance will provide you with an excellent foundation to pursue an international law career, whether it be in legal practice, employment in international institutions, or employment in non-governmental organisations. What is more, the LLM qualification will be an excellent vehicle for the further development of research skills and as such also offers entry into further postgraduate study and, in particular, doctoral research.
