Interested in criminal law? Want to focus your legal skills towards working at an international level? Then LLM International Criminal Law is perfect for you! We cover the key concepts in enforcing international criminal law, looking particularly at crimes falling under the jurisdiction of international criminal courts and tribunals. This includes genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and aggression. You’ll learn valuable practical skills to become a specialist international lawyer, including conducting mediation and negotiation in an international law setting and acting as an advocate presenting legal arguments before an international forum.

As well as focusing on a specialist area, we will also help you develop an awareness and critical understanding of commercialism in the legal sector, understanding the law in practice and legal ethics. You’ll gain everything you need to work in international law, opening your career options and enhancing your skills for future employment. Take your love of law to the next level by gaining expertise in international criminal law.

We offer an academically stimulating environment in which you can learn a vocationally relevant course that enhances employability. You’ll be able to make a critical assessment of the areas of law studied with an awareness of the social context in which the law is made and applied. We’ll help you develop the ability to make sound professional judgments and actively apply and integrate the theory of law with legal and professional skills.

Students will attend lecture sessions alongside LLB students in the seven foundational modules. Separate seminar/ workshop sessions will be held for Graduate Diploma students which will be tailored to the additional and specific requirements of level 6 study in relation to these subjects.
