Our Public International Law LLM will give you a solid grounding in the techniques of arguing and interpreting international law. You will gain expertise in how these elements are put to the test in very different contexts, from protecting the environment, to regulating world trade and humanitarian protection. With over 20 qualifying module options covering both classic topics and innovative areas, you can tailor your LLM to your interests and career goals. You are taught by experts in their fields, many of whom contribute to policymaking and implementation of human rights norms at state and international levels. We encourage a culture of collaboration in the school and you can enrich your learning experience through the International Law Association seminar series. Seminars are given by distinguished visitors from across the world, giving you the opportunity to network with legal professionals. 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 a minimum of 90 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 a public international law 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.
