The LLM in Public International Law at Coventry University aims to provide you with an opportunity to develop recognised legal expertise within the field of public international law. As a system of law, public international law focuses on the treaties, rules, and conduct governing the relationship between states.


The Public International Law at Coventry University will approach public international law from the vantage point of the foreign relations, ideas, and substantive issues that shape its development. You will be able to gain an in depth understanding of public international law as a system of law by not only being introduced to its fundamental aspects, but also by being taught the skills necessary to apprehend the way public international law regulates the state system and responds to changes within the dynamics of that system.

Career prospects

The LLM in Public International Law provides specialist knowledge in the legal understanding and application of international law, thus providing graduates with legal specialism in this area of law.

Career potential is wide-ranging and includes work in areas such as international criminal law, international trade and investment law, as well as human rights advocacy. Graduates may obtain employment in their national public service, including their government’s diplomatic service. There is also potential to engage in legal advisory work in inter-governmental organisations, non-governmental organisations, and State administrations.
