International Law

This programme provides a good understanding of public and commercial international law. The programme covers international trade and finance, corporate law, world trade and environmental law. The programme is designed for students who wish to broaden their knowledge across international boundaries without limiting themselves to commercial or public law.

Entry requirements

A high 2nd Class undergraduate degree, or equivalent, in an appropriate discipline.

Course modules

The academic year is divided into 2 semesters with 4 modules each semester. A dissertation is completed over the summer. There are 3 compulsory modules in semester 1: academic writing for postgraduates in law; foundations in international commercial law; general principles of international law; and 1 compulsory module in semester 2: current trends in international law. The remaining 4 modules can be chosen from those within the international commercial law, public international law programmes or from an alternative programme.

Assessment methods

All modules are assessed by written coursework, although other forms of assessment may be used as well. Students also complete a dissertation over the summer months. This can be normally in the stream of their choice but is subject to the staffing resources being available.
