University rank #301 (WUR) Cambridge, United Kingdom
The International Law programme at Anglia Ruskin University will help you master the theory and practice of international law, both private and public. Develop advanced analytic and research skills for professional practice and other high-level international careers.

Overview

During the International Law programme at Anglia Ruskin University, you will develop the necessary skills to critically appraise how international laws are created and enforced. Your legal reasoning, critical analysis, research skills and independent judgement will all be exercised as you learn to apply legal discourse to the regulation of transnational commercial, political and social interactions.

Our core modules will introduce you to the fundamental themes in the higher study of international law, the key principles of private and public international law, and an overview of international human rights and criminal law. On our optional modules, you can specialise in areas such as legal frameworks for media industries, synergies between European and international law, or more traditional topics such as comparative company law and international arbitration.

At the end of the course, you will use all the skills and knowledge you have learned to research and complete a Major Project in the area of international law that most interests you, under expert supervision.

Careers

Our LLM will help you develop professional skills including logical reasoning, critical analysis, research and independent judgement, along with an understanding of the complex interplay between infrastructure, content, competition, social policy, punishment and trade in the international arena, and a greater capacity for legal communication.

These skills will prepare you for international practice and academic research at the highest level, but are also transferable to a range of other intellectually demanding roles, such as working for international NGOs and other agencies, or public service.
