  • Overview

    This course offers a broad as well as profound overview of international law and its various areas, its relations to politics, and current challenges of the international legal system. The focus will be on the theoretical background of international law, as well as its practical implications in our globalised world. It will thus provide a critical, analytical, and stimulating perspective on the nature and scope of international law for every scholar interested in this field. Furthermore, our location in London will offer you not only access to law firms exclusively dedicated to international law (such as Volterra Fietta), but also to international organisations based in London (both better known organisations, such as the International Maritime Organisation and the Commonwealth of Nations, as well as lesser known organisations such as the International Coffee Organisation).
