International law as an academic discipline is the study of laws that are recognised and followed across different countries, states and territories. Those laws encapsulate the rules, norms and standards that become the guidelines for each member state that is held under that set of laws. As an international lawyer, you might be involved in the law surrounding war, economic relations, diplomacy and human rights.
During a degree in international law, you will cover a range of topics. These could include:
- International, European and Comparative Law
- Law in Action
- Criminal Law
- Land Law
- Public Law
