The LLM in International Law is designed for students looking beyond the horizons of their respective domestic legal orders. It reflects the breadth of contemporary international law, addressing issues as diverse as world trade disputes, United Nations peacekeeping, international human rights litigation, investment protection and criminal trials before international courts. It is based on the conviction that the international system requires a functioning legal framework, and that rules of international law are of practical relevance, both at the international and increasingly also the national level. It responds to the increasing demand for lawyers with a background in international law, whether in the public sector, civil society, academia or in legal practice. The leading teaching team is made up of experts from Germany, Scotland, Canada and Uzbekistan.
As part of the Taught Masters Programme, there is a compulsory one-week induction programme, tailored specifically for the LLM. This offers students information and guidance on learning methods, research skills, and on non-academic aspects of life and study in Glasgow.
The LLM in International Law is taught by a team who combine academic excellence with first-hand knowledge of the practical workings of international law.
