About International Law and Global Governance at School of Law, University of Leeds

International Law and Global Governance provides the opportunity to engage with a dynamic and responsive approach to contemporary global problems through law and legal institutions. It examines areas such as the use of force, climate change, global migration, the role of judicial settlement and the right to development, which each raise urgent questions as to the effectiveness of current governance and regulatory regimes.

International law is increasingly a matter of concern for a wide range of stakeholders, whether public or private bodies and at international, national and local levels. Given contemporary and future global challenges - for example, protecting human rights and security and the conservation of resources - the significance of global governance is growing in a multipolar world.

Together with international scholars and students, we will critically examine and apply the policies, theories, principles, and rules of international law, to novel problems, real-world and hypothetical scenarios, and consider the impact of legal and political institutions such as the UN Security Council and the International Court of Justice.

This programme will enhance your understanding and challenge preconceptions of the complex legal and political nature of international law-making and governance and explore the often competing concepts that infuse the subject of international law.

What students think about School of Law, University of Leeds

    Melisa Martinez Delgado, LLM International Corporate Law

    Testimonial from Melisa Martinez Delgado, LLM International Corporate Law, student at School of Law

    My experience studying at the University of Leeds has exceeded all my expectations. I have really enjoyed the seminars, participating in class with the Professors and working with my fellow international students.

    The best part of the seminars is that they really encourage you to critically analyse the law and its consequences in practice, not only learning about the theory but questioning it. The course also really encourages you to engage in research, something that I am very passionate about and will help me in my future career.

    Nelly Tutu, LLB Law (graduate programme)

    Testimonial from Nelly Tutu, LLB Law (graduate programme), student at School of Law

    I chose Leeds because of its excellent academic reputation and its vibrant student culture. The university is very welcoming and supportive towards students, so I was excited to come here.

    I like that what I am studying is thought-provoking and challenging - this will allow me to grow, not only on an academic level, but on a personal level too.

    Being a part of the Law Society has been really fun! They put on awesome events where people from the faculty can get to know each other while doing something fun, such as the annual Law Ball. I remember being really anxious during the first week of term and the Equality and Diversity Secretary put on a great ice-breaker event where I got to meet other students who I am still friends with today!

    Testimonial from Ghanashyam Khadka, LLM International and European Human Rights Law, student at School of Law

    Its worldwide reputation on the study of law was the obvious reason that led me to choose the University of Leeds. Every seminar is exciting and the lectures have inspired me throughout the course, and using research based methodology has also been a new experience for me. Being in classes full of international course mates has been truly enthralling too. The positive aura of the school has never let me feel that I was on the other side of the globe away from home.
