Law and International Law

Robert Gordon University


The International Law pathway of the LLM Law programme is designed for those who want to gain advance knowledge in the area of private and public international law.

The LLM Law and International Law pathway has been designed to incorporate maximum flexibility both in the topics you cover and the way that you learn.

The course examines current trends in global politics and adopts a theoretical and practical approach. The focus is not limited to traditional issues of state to state interactions but also includes the effect of the international legal framework on natural and artificial persons.

This course involves the study of eight taught modules plus a dissertation on an International Commercial Law topic. Four subject related modules must be chosen in order to obtain an LLM Law and International Law degree.

If you do not hold an LLB degree of equivalent, you will be required to study the Legal Framework module.

Entry Requirements

Applicants will normally hold a 2:2 undergraduate honours degree or its equivalent in any subject discipline. Applicants with relevant work experience will be considered on a case by case basis.
