LLM or MSc Global Crisis, Conflict and Disaster Management

The LLM or MSc Global Crisis, Conflict and Disaster Management is a globally unique programme, which is accessible to law and non-law graduates, including professionals engaged in humanitarian aid and disaster prevention and management.

This innovative multidisciplinary programme examines the role of global law, policy, and practice across the spectrum of possible conflicts, ‘human-made’ and ‘natural’ disasters. It further considers significant crises not escalating to the scale of conflict or disaster, as well as complex emergencies.

You will be taught in an engaging and interactive manner by world leading academics in this field, and you will also benefit from embedded mentoring, employability and practical training delivered by practitioners.

There is flexibility for you to transfer between degree entry points (e.g. LLM, PGDip, PGCert); also to take individual modules with Certificates of Credit which are transferable to the degree programme.
