Overview

International Law and Globalisation introduces students to the international, regional and transnational context within which law operates.

It provides an interdisciplinary understanding of the operation of law and is a Qualifying Law Degree. The programme goes beyond the traditional national law-centric approach to LLB degrees, and provides an excellent foundation for students wishing to pursue legal careers within a globalised world.

Birmingham Law School is the most established law school in one of the largest legal communities in the country. For almost 100 years we have made a major contribution to teaching and scholarship, and you’ll learn from academics who are leaders in their fields and the authors of many key works used by practitioners today. The skills you will acquire throughout the degree are transferable and as a result you will enjoy excellent employment prospects in both law and non-law careers.
