About Public International Law and World Order LLM (Approved in Principle) at Brunel University London

The award aims to deliver a normative international law programme and explore cutting edge issues that would normally not be covered by conservative Public International Law awards. The programme will cover fast developing areas such as security policies and issues, economic and environmental orders. Entry RequirementsA first degree in Law or any social science/humanity discipline with substantial law elements.Course AimsThe course will offer students the opportunity of understanding the connection between international law and politics and policies especially in the areas of international law aspects of terrorism, security and securitisation of issues, and cyber crimes. The course will equip students with the tools that they need to engage in a rapidly transforming world where theoretical knowledge of the law is becoming insufficient to deal both with legal issues and emerging markets, especially in international organizations, NGOs, state departments and Government administrations. Students need to understand the interplay between the law and practice/policy in order to make them a “total product” in their field. The course intends to produce a different generation of international lawyers who could interrogate different fields of international law in a manner that international lawyers of the old could not. They will be experts in the most daunting aspects of international law and world orders where the drastic shortage of experts and capacity continues to grow.Course ContentTypical modulesCoreCollective Security Law DissertationElectivesThree from a selection that currently includes: International Economic Law International Human Rights International Humanitarian Law International Criminal LawTeaching and LearningThe teaching will usually take the form of classes, involving discussion of prepared reading, supplemented by lecturing from the module teacher to introduce and consolidate the discussion.

Each assessment is worth 50% of the overall mark.CareersThe LLM is intended to empower successful candidates to become practitioners, critical scholars, innovators and masters of their chosen disciplines.
