LAW37720 Advanced International Law: Current Issues
Academic Year 2023/2024
This module aims to give students with existing knowledge of international law the chance to undertake more in-depth study and research into contemporary issues that raise salient international legal problems. Recent events and issues such as the Russian invasion of and ongoing war in Ukraine, increasing awareness of the climate emergency, or - more closer to home - the fallout from Brexit raise profound questions of international law and the response of the international community. Although the precise content of the module will be determined closer to the time of the course, it is envisaged that this module will allow students to apply international legal knowledge to a number of in-depth case studies.
