In recent years, key global issues have raised the profile of international affairs substantially. Lawyers are increasingly required to understand both the legal and political issues which influence how States and other international actors behave.
This Legal and Political Aspects of International Affairs programme from Cardiff University offers tuition from established experts in both international law and international relations and will help you build the necessary level of expertise to succeed in the fast-growing world of international affairs, in a stimulating and challenging environment.
This programme offers an international perspective, with emphasis on international conventions as well as political reality.
Our LLM Legal and Political Aspects of International Affairs programme:
- Provides you with a general appreciation of current issues in specific areas of law, both domestic and international
- Stimulates a critical approach to evaluation of current and proposed regulation and cultivates independent and original thought
- Enables you to undertake in-depth research and demonstrate advanced knowledge in specific areas of law.
The course is very flexible and offers a wide range of modules providing you with the ability to customise the programme to meet your own professional and/or employment needs or interests.
A law degree doesn’t restrict graduates to careers within the legal profession and law graduates enter professions as diverse as finance, sales and marketing, digital communications and recruitment.
We are committed to extending extracurricular opportunities to our students, helping to enhance their CVs in a competitive graduate job market. We work in partnership with lawyers, charities and voluntary organisations to give you the opportunity to practise and extend your skills and we run several Pro Bono schemes and provide advice to members of the community on different legal issues.
Graduates successfully completing the LLM programme may have the opportunity to continue their legal study through our PhD programme or through the Centre for Professional Legal Studies professional programmes (the Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course).
