Course summary

Our LLM 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.

Course characteristics:

  • Globally unique programme which examines law, policy and practice, with multidisciplinary perspectives
  • Available to law and non-law graduates
  • Develops key professional and personal skills, with embedded employability and practical training delivered by practitioners

WHAT CAREER CAN YOU HAVE?

The programme will appeal to early and mid-career law and non-law professionals as well as recent graduates and career changers. In addition to developing core knowledge of foundational principles of International Law, this unique programme facilitates a multidisciplinary awareness – which is increasingly essential for working in the sectors of crisis, conflict and disaster management.

The skills gained by undertaking a postgraduate Law degree are in great demand from both legal and non-legal employers. As with any postgraduate taught Law programme, completion of the various entry points will be an asset for students seeking employment in international courts and tribunals, United Nations agencies, legal practice and advocacy in the international law field, international NGOs, the public service (in the areas of foreign relations, international development, etc), law reform agencies, the media (journalism and broadcasting) and academia (with further postgraduate study).
