Public International Law has traditionally been concerned with the structure and behaviour of sovereign states and intergovernmental organisations.
In recent decades, however, international law has also progressively affected multinational corporations and individuals. Public international law has increased in use and relevance vastly over the twentieth century, due to a globalised world with an upsurge in global trade, environmental concerns, human rights violations, armed conflicts and a boom in global communications. You will therefore benefit from the study of law in these areas and under the direction of experts in this field.
The course offers a unique blend of delivery including guest lectures, electronic learning, lectures and seminars.
“In a globalised world, public international law has increased in both use and relevance and our students benefit from having experts as their academics.”
