The LLM in international and comparative public law offers a unique opportunity for law students and graduates from other social science backgrounds to develop an integrated and rigorous understanding of the nature and workings of public law in a global context.
During the programme, you will be encouraged to compare and contrast the legal, political and philosophical perspectives of the issues and challenges which confront international public law today.
This unprecedented interdisciplinary approach will provide you with the opportunity to investigate and compare how different national or area regimes respond to public law issues. These include human rights, conflict resolution, political economy, migration, citizenship, as well as humanitarian, criminal and environmental law.
This programme will provide you with a distinctive qualification with a breadth and depth of knowledge and skills which are appealing to both the public and private sector. If you plan to go into private practice in law or business, this programme will enable you apply your analytical skills across a range of interrelated topics.
Like all postgraduate Law students at the University of Exeter, you will have the opportunity to go on a study tour to see at first hand the workings of the institutions of the European Union and the Council of Europe. You will also have the opportunity to attend an accompanieed study tour to the United Nations in Geneva as part of the International Human Rights Law module, which provides and invaluable chance to see the workings of various UN-committee sessions.
We are now taking applications for this programme.
My experiences in law-making institutions through internships during my undergraduate degree influenced my decision to further my understanding in comparative public law. This prompted my search for a Law School that could offer a legal curriculum whose breadth and depth is unmatched in legal education. Read Faheem's full profile.
