Our LLM International Humanitarian Law has been designed to address situations such as these and provide you with the knowledge and skills to pursue or advance your career in fields related to legal regimes applicable to armed conflict and acute crisis situations. Emphasis is placed on understanding the practical application of the law. It is intended to ensure a balance between theory and practice, so that you are equipped to deal with real world situations.
You examine the legal regimes applicable to situations of armed conflict, and you develop a comprehensive understanding of:
- the regulation of the conduct of hostilities
- the protection of victims of armed conflict
- the application of international human rights law in the context of armed conflict and acute crisis
- the application of international criminal law and international refugee law in the context of armed conflict and acute crisis
- addressing legal obligations and engagement of non-state actors
You also explore and debate some of the biggest contemporary challenges confronting the humanitarian sector today. This includes cutting-edge issues such as the legal challenges posed by new technologies and cyber warfare, as well as more traditional issues such as the protection of displaced persons during emergency situations.
Our School of Law graduates have gone on to a wide variety of careers in international and intergovernmental organisations or employment with governments across the world, in commerce and banking, in non-governmental organisations and, as might be expected, in the legal profession and the judiciary.
