Course summary

Our postgraduate course in International Law and Social Justice will expand the knowledge of those wishing to have a specialist working knowledge of the justice, international trade, charity and NGO sectors.

The emphasis of this course is to develop critical thinking and the application of theoretical knowledge on legal practice. Your study will also take a unique view of the law as it relates to health care through the prism of human rights along with modules on corporate crime and justice as well as a deeper exploration of international human rights and the law of international trade.

Experienced lecturers will support you to develop your skills of critical thinking and legal and interdisciplinary discourse and will also feature guest talks. You are encouraged to join extracurricular activities such as mooting, client interviewing and pro bono work to encourage you to develop skills in legal research, problem solving, critical analysis and communication.

Course structure

This course is taught full-time (two days a week) or part-time (one day a week).

Teaching will be delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars and workshops. You will be assessed through written and oral assessment.

Students joining the course without an honours degree in law will need to complete a module on the English legal system before starting the course. Teaching for this module starts in the second week of September.

This will provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to embark on the remainder of your legal studies.

Career prospects

Students graduating from this course will be in a position to continue onto vocational training courses enabling them to work in the legal profession or to go into careers for NGOs, the Law Commission or charities.
