Course description

This course has been designed primarily for students and lawyers who want to develop expertise in international law and who work in, or intend to pursue a career in, the public sector. This may include high-level government lawyers, leaders in non-governmental organisations, and academics. The course offers the opportunity to gain a critical understanding of the role of international law in advancing justice both in times of peace and war.

Teaching is informed by the research of renowned academics from the Sheffield Centre for International and European Law.

This course is one of the pathways offered on the Sheffield LLM. You can also choose to study the LLM Corporate and Commercial Law option.

If you’re not sure which specialist pathway you want to follow, don’t worry, you can take the Sheffield LLM without specialising, or opt to follow one of the pathways on arrival. The choice is yours.
