With globalisation, international law is becoming increasingly important, and our International Law LLM prepares you for a future career in the international arena. Our teaching team is composed of world-renowned scholars who are leading the way in their respective subjects, including – but not limited to – international human rights law, the law of armed conflict, development law, energy and climate change law, international cyber security law, refugee law, the law of the sea, international courts and tribunals. In previous years, our teaching team organised study visits to international organisations and to international courts in London and The Hague. Our International Law LLM attracts students from every nationality and background, not only those who have previously studied law, but also those with a degree in political science, international relations, or other relevant discipline. This creates a uniquely vibrant and stimulating learning environment in which to study international Law. The International Law LLM at Westminster Law School is taught in our central London campus, just a short distance from most major British institutions and international organisations. The course can be taken full-time or part-time, and you can start in either September or January. We also have a research group, International Law at Westminster (ILaW), which conducts important research projects on topical international law issues. These projects have received external funding because of their importance and their potential impact. ILaW also regularly organises events in which students are invited to participate. Every year, the Oxford University Press Prize is awarded to the best International Law LLM student. The course will enhance your understanding of the key principles of public international law, the main developments within the public international law framework and the process of globalisation and its significance for international law.
