The Masters in International Law reflects the breadth of contemporary international law, addressing issues as diverse as world trade disputes, United Nations peacekeeping, international human rights litigation, State responsibility and criminal trials before international courts. It is based on the conviction that the international system requires a functioning legal framework, and that rules of international law are of practical relevance (both internationally and domestically).
- If you want to increase your horizons to an international platform and look beyond domestic legal orders, this LLM is ideal for you.
- You will be taught by a team that truly understands international issues, with staff drawn from Canada, Germany, Scotland, Greece and Uzbekistan.
- We offer excellent facilities including our dedicated School of Law library; our main University library also contains our extensive collection of legal materials and official publications and is a European Documentation Centre.
- The programme is complemented by guest speaker events and research workshops, allowing students to get involved with leading academics from outside Glasgow.
