Overview

The modern world is defined by its global nature; no individual or country is left untouched by global interactions or implications.

This is not just in relation to economic processes, but also critical transnational issues, such as immigration, terrorism, environmental damage and cyber security. Law is increasingly called upon to respond to these challenges in innovative and nuanced ways. This pathway will appeal to those who wish to engage with this dynamic area of international law with applications in multiple career directions.

Programme structure

You follow a modular programme (180 credits in total), which comprises six taught modules (20 credits each) and a dissertation of 15,000 words (60 credits); the latter to be submitted at the end of the year of study. Students following the International Law and Globalisation pathway will study a minimum of three of their six modules from the list below;
