Public International Law

This course is designed for those candidates who seek the qualification of a general public international lawyer, but with a range of specialist interests (as in environmental protection, or World trade or humanitarian warfare or human rights). The course not only allows candidates to develop a grounding in the techniques of argument and interpretation of international law with special reference to its sources (such as treaties and custom) but also to acquire some expertise in how these elements are put to the test in very different contexts (compare for example, the notion of the international law of development, which enjoys a more recent history of legal intervention, with the international regulation of the sue of force, whose history is often traced back to the 1907 Hague Convention Respecting the Limitation of the Employment of Force for the Recovery of Contract Debts). The course seeks to produce a well-rounded, or general, international lawyer who is sufficiently equipped in the basic methodologies of the discipline but who, at the same time, has a general awareness of the various sub-realms of public international law applied therein.
