Course summary

International law is an exciting and ever changing area of law.

You’ll study international law from a theoretical perspective, helping you to understand and contextualise the law and the international legal system. You’ll learn from today’s leading lawyers – our world-leading research underpins our teaching – and gain a strong basis in the foundations of international law and the international legal system.

You’ll have the opportunity to explore specialist areas of the law that seek to regulate, for example:

  • the use of force
  • armed conflict
  • international crimes and terrorism
  • human rights and human migration
  • the protection of the environment.

Sussex Law School provides an international, stimulating and engaging learning environment for you to build a rich base of knowledge. We’ll also prepare you for your future career – our courses have skills training at their core, enabling you to approach legal problems logically.

CAREERS

Our course will enhance your employability. You’ll have acquired transferable methodological skills, equipping you to handle legal texts, international instruments and academic literature.

The LLM’s emphasis on comparative, international examples will help if you are interested in looking to work in both the UK and overseas in international law firms, agencies, governments, international organisations and NGOs.
