About

The Law (International Law with International Relations) programme at University of Kent allows you to broaden and deepen your knowledge and understanding of law by specialising in one or more different areas.

Overview

This Law (International Law with International Relations) programme at University of Kent allows international law and international relations to inform each other. It covers the general methods, scope and theories of international law, international humanitarian law and international relations. 

It provides a detailed understanding of the role, potential and limitations of public international law in international affairs. Its interdisciplinary approach is particularly suited to those involved with, or hoping to work for, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, foreign affairs departments and international law firms.

Careers

Employability is a key focus throughout the University and at Kent Law School you have the support of a dedicated Employability and Career Development Officer together with a broad choice of work placement opportunities, employability events and careers talks. Details of graduate internship schemes with NGOs, charities and other professional organisations are made available to postgraduate students via the School’s Employability Blog.

Law graduates have gone on to careers in finance, international commerce, government and law or have joined, or started, an NGO or charity.
