Students can explore the various elements of the disaster management cycle concerned with preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disasters, and consider the legal framework applicable to these disasters. The programme also allows students to develop their understanding of the law of armed conflict, from the ‘laws of war’ to the strong humanitarian focus of the modern era.
Students can undertake a substantial dissertation, which is designed to enhance research skills through a detailed investigation in an area of their own choice.
Career and Personal Development
The Conflict and Disaster Law from University of Lincoln is designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop a solid bedrock in terms of knowledge and skills to pursue, or further develop their careers, whether they be in legal practice, working in business or industry, working for governmental or international organisations, for non-governmental organisations or in academia.
For those pursuing legal careers, there has been an increasing demand for lawyers with the necessary knowledge of international law. Many governmental and international organisations such as the United Nations and non-governmental organisations such as the International Committee of the Red Cross require the expertise of those with backgrounds in international law and specific expertise in developing areas such as disaster law.
