The LLM (International Law) is one of the named routes through our LLM programme and allows you to specialise and develop expertise in international legal issues. The programme has been designed by a team of highly motivated academic staff at Teesside University who have particular research interests that have informed its content.

Description

Advertisement

The programme gives you flexibility and autonomy to allow you to develop you own areas of interest within the area of international law, and at the same time distinguish you in the eyes of employers in ways that show that you have specialised in a substantive and applied area of contemporary legal study relevant to international policy and practice.

How you learn

The link between legal theory and practice is the central theme of the programme and is incorporated into the teaching through a blend of directed and student-centred learning to develop an understanding of methodology, practice and presentation. This is achieved through a combination of lectures, seminars, group work, debates, audio-visual presentations, guided reading and research exercises.

We want you to become an effective autonomous learner. The research and academic writing skills you develop in taught sessions will enable you to prepare and contribute to seminars and group discussions, and to produce the required assessed work appropriate to postgraduate study. You are also encouraged to attend and participate in relevant research seminars offered by the research institutes of the University, particularly the Social Futures Institute (SoFI) in the School of Social Sciences & Law.

How you are assessed

Our assessments help you develop essential skills to work successfully at postgraduate level, as well as for continuing professional roles and lifelong learning. Your work is assessed in a variety of ways, including:

• individual presentations
• peer review and assessment
• research proposal
• reflective practice
• written assignments
• dissertation

Career opportunities

By completing the course you will develop and have recognised knowledge and understanding of the theory and application of international law. You will also develop cognitive, intellectual, practical, professional and generic key skills and qualities, which have a directly beneficial effect on future employability, whether in the legal profession, or in your subject-related discipline, including academia. You will be equipped to contribute to and inform policy-making decisions in your chosen sphere.
A number of our previous students have published work in academic journals.
