Course summary

Conflicts and disasters have affected, and will continue to affect, individuals, communities, states, regions, and continents around the world. According to the United Nations, more than two billion people have been affected by disasters and conflicts since the year 2000, destroying infrastructure, displacing populations, and fundamentally undermining human security. The LLM Conflict and Disaster Law is designed to equip students with a critical understanding of how law, policy, and practice impacts responses to conflict and disaster in both human and environmental situations.

Students can explore the various elements of the disaster management cycle concerned with preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disasters, and consider the legal framework applicable to these disasters. The programme also allows students to develop their understanding of the law of armed conflict, from the ‘laws of war’ to the strong humanitarian focus of the modern era.

Students can undertake a substantial dissertation, which is designed to enhance research skills through a detailed investigation in an area of their own choice.The LLM courses at Lincoln Law School are designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop a solid bedrock in terms of knowledge and skills to pursue, or further develop their careers, whether they be in legal practice, working in business or industry, working for governmental or international organisations, for non-governmental organisations or in academia.

For those pursuing legal careers, there has been an increasing demand for lawyers with the necessary knowledge of international law. Many governmental and international organisations such as the United Nations and non-governmental organisations such as the International Committee of the Red Cross require the expertise of those with backgrounds in international law and specific expertise in developing areas such as disaster law.

Lincoln Law School has a strong corpus of lawyers with a range of expertise in different aspects of international law and aims to provide the perfect training ground from which lawyers seeking these types of careers can develop. For those students seeking careers in academia, the LLM programmes that we offer, provide the opportunity to develop a natural grounding for anyone seeking to go on to study for an MPhil or PhD. Whatever career path you are pursuing, Lincoln Law School in conjunction with the bespoke careers advice service within the University of Lincoln are on hand to work with you to maximise your potential and aim to ensure that you are best placed to be able to achieve your objectives.
