On completion of the module, students should have developed:
- a deeper understandings of the working and application of the international legal system
- an in-depth knowledge of contemporary issues of international legal concern (precise topics to be determined)
- a better understanding of how international legal problems are understood from a range of perspectives and how international law can be applied in practice to help to determine solutions or mitigations to contemporary issues of global concern
Students should also have enhanced the generally transferable skills and specific skills developed throughout their degree programmes, including the ability to conduct legal research (especially using international legal materials) and the ability to present a coherent legal argument. Students will be expected to demonstrate these learning outcomes through the combination of a mid-term research paper and an end of trimester essay assignment.
*Due to the nature of the module precise content will be determined at the start of the relevant trimester*
