Our International Criminal Justice and Armed Conflict LLM explores current issues and modern challenges to the law and politics surrounding war and justice, examining the law that applies before, during and after an armed conflict. You 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. With an advanced law degree from the University of Nottingham, you will graduate with all the knowledge, practical skills and confidence to pursue your career goals.
You will complete the core module and a minimum of 75 credits of specialist optional modules. The remaining 30 credits can be chosen from the full selection of optional modules available on the LLM programme. You will also undertake a 60-credit dissertation. Guidance and support on choosing an international criminal justice and armed conflict dissertation topic and designing your project will be provided through bespoke workshops and one-to-one support.
You will be assessed by exam or essay, or a combination of both. Assessments take place at the end of each term. Practice assignments, guidance on exam techniques, time management workshops, and one-to-one legal skills advice sessions are offered throughout the year to prepare you for these assessments.
