With the increased globalisation of the last twenty years and, even earlier, with the rise to prominence of the international human rights movement, there has been the impetus for students of all nationalities towards studying areas of law with a broad international and comparative focus.
The International and Comparative Law programme of Trinity College Dublin is delivered over one academic year. It seeks to promote critical analysis of, and reflection on, different aspects of international law and comparative law. Students on this programme are examined in six modules and will also complete a research dissertation on a topic approved by the Dissertation Director and related to some aspect of international and comparative law.
- International and European Human Rights Law
- International Humanitarian Law
- International Economic Law
- Islamic Law
- Refugee Law
- International Aviation Law
