International law regulates relations at the international level and so in this module you will study the theories, principles and processes of this system of law including its sources, legal personality, jurisdiction and responsibility. In addition you will also explore substantive issues in the regulation of activities at the international context, including the use of force, dispute settlement processes, and the protection of human rights.

Although non-law students are welcome to enrol in this module they should be prepared to do substantive legal research and read extensive amounts of case-law.  This may present some challenges for students unfamiliar with legal research and/or materials.
