  • Objectives
    The course aims to meet the educational needs of graduates with an interest in law and international relations. In particular it seeks: * to highlight, in an increasingly globalised 21st century world, the significance of international law as a means of regulating matters affecting relations among nation states and, increasingly, within nation states; * to explore the significant connections between international law, and the structure and operation of major institutions in society, with an emphasis on issues arising in a global context; * to provide a deep understanding of the legal rules that operate within selected specific fields that fall within the broad conception of international law, especially as it concerns security, business, transnational threats, and human rights.Learning outcomesAt the completion of the course, students will be able to: * recognise situations arising in a global and regional context where international law can play a role in resolving problems, particularly at the policy level; * demonstrate familiarity with the major fields of international law and international relations in global and regional contexts; * articulate the ways in which relevant rules of international law interact with and influence the contact of international relations in the twenty-first century; * use the knowledge and understanding acquired to plan transactions and activities and resolve problems to further relevant domestic and international objectives that arise within a global context.
