International law regulates the relations between States and with other actors at the international level and can affect society in a variety of ways, both internationally and at the domestic level. It helps us to explain and analyse interactions in the international community and their impact within national societies.

This International Law specialisation will give you the skills necessary to navigate the international legal system, with the opportunity to focus on areas of particular interest through a wide array of elective courses, many of which require the completion of a substantial research paper.

This specialisation is highly flexible, allowing you to choose courses that are compatible with your current profession or that extend your knowledge in new directions. Whether you are working in private practice, an NGO, within government or are looking to expand your legal knowledge for a future career – this program offers diversity, flexibility and knowledge suitable for a wide range of students.
