Overview

This innovative LLM in International Law (and Politics) at Keele University examines the complex interplay between law and politics in international affairs. Delivered jointly by the School of Law and the School of Politics, Philosophy, International Relations and the Environment (SPIRE), the LLM provides students with an opportunity to develop critical understanding of how politics shape international law and how, in return, law shapes the behaviour of states in their dealings with one another and with other actors. 

As will all our postgraduate programmes, the LLM encourages an integrated theoretical and interdisciplinary approach to global governance, where law is studied in its broader philosophical, historical and social context. This approach is particularly suited to those who aspire to work for international institutions like the UN, non-governmental organisations, government agencies or international law firms.

Careers

The LLM in International Law and Politics is a gateway to a range of employment opportunities. These include careers in international NGOs, charities, international organisations like the UN, policy think-tanks, advocacy groups, government, journalism and academia.
