This stream is intended for those who are interested in working in institutions related to public international law or those who would like to gain specific knowledge of this area for governmental and non-governmental opportunities. With an additional five new modules, a more cohesive structure is offered as an introductory base for students who may not have a background in International Law especially if they do not possess a law degree.

Duration and mode of study
One year full-time or two to five years part-time.

Course structure
You will take three 15 credit compulsory modules, two in semester one and one in semester two, which cover fundamental international law issues.

* Writing Skills
* General Principles in International Law
* Current Trends in International Law

You must then select 45 credits of modules from the list below and 30 credits of modules from the LLM General Programme. You will also be required to complete a 60 credit dissertation on a topic within the area of public international law.

* Contemporary Legal Problems of World Trade

Teaching and assessment methods
The modules are taught by seminars which are designed to allow students to discuss and debate the subject, with guidance from the tutor. All modules are assessed by written coursework, although other forms of assessment may be used as well. Students also complete a dissertation over the summer months. This can be normally in the stream of their choice but is subject to the staffing resources being available. Students registered for the LLM in International Commercial Law have priority within that stream.

Candidates should normally have a first or good second class honours degree in law or an equivalent degree where law is a substantial element or an equivalent degree in an appropriate discipline. Relevant professional experience post-graduation is given due credit in considering entry requirements.
