This International Criminal Justice and Armed Conflict course from University of Nottingham will develop a complete overview of the law governing the use of force by states, the law applicable to the conduct of hostilities, and the international criminal justice system. You will also consider the legal and philosophical responses to international criminality.
You will be taught by experts in the field, many of whom have practical experience with international organisations such as the International Criminal Court and the Special Court for Sierra Leone.
We encourage a culture of collaboration in the school and you can enrich your learning experience through the Criminal Justice Research Centre. They host a number of interesting speakers every year and you can also engage with our monthly forum, organised by our PhD students.
Our graduates go on to a wide range of careers. Many go into the legal profession or return to their previous legal careers with specialist knowledge and enhanced prospects. Others work in international organisations and NGOs. Some graduates further their academic career by progressing onto our PhD programme.
Recent graduate destinations include BAE Systems, Clifford Chance, London Stock Exchange and Simmons & Simmons.
