This stream of the LLM in Law is the ideal grounding if you wish to work in organisations related to this field. With our innovative course design, this course would suit students without a law background and provide you with an in-depth and critical understanding of public international law. You will be able to tailor the course to suit your needs by choosing from a broad range of subjects including law of armed conflict, law of United Nations, international environmental law, international migration law, international criminal law, human rights and international finance law.
During the Public International Law programme offered at the University of Leicester, you will develop your ability to think both analytically and critically through our strong emphasis on independent study research. Our seminar-based teaching will focus on discussion and debate and will ensure you have the opportunity to develop your oral presentation skills. You will be assessed primarily through coursework and a final dissertation which will equip you with advanced skills in time management, written communication, planning and self-directed study.
