Course summary

  • Undertake a suite of substantive modules offered in conjunction with the Public International Law LLM programme
  • This MRes is an approved pathway for ESRC funding, enabling students to apply for ESRC 1+3 funding to cover the MRes and a PhD
  • Successful MRes graduates can apply subsequently for ESRC +3 funding
  • Your fellow students will come from the UK and more than 80 other countries, each able to draw on prior academic and professional experience from different jurisdictions

What you'll study

The MRes is ideal if you are planning to undertake doctoral-level study in the area of public international law. However, it also caters for those seeking to expand and apply their knowledge of this area of study, and is an ideal preparation for those wishing to pursue more advanced research.

You will undertake two compulsory modules in social science research, covering epistemology, research design, and qualitative methods as well as quantitative methods and data. You will then select from a substantial list of existing elective modules developed for the LLM in Public International Law. Please note that not all modules will be available in any given year.

Your core modules are taught jointly with social science students from a range of disciplines across Queen Mary, King’s College London and Imperial College. This training is offered by the ESRC-funded London Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership.

You will also have voluntary access to an excellent series of lectures in Critical Thinking and Writing in Law to help you to improve your writing and research in law skills.

Career paths

The MRes is designed specifically for students who wish to go onto doctoral-level or further research.

We have dedicated law careers advisers who organise events and internship opportunities with top UK and international law firms.
