International Relations and Law

**Why study this course?** Explore how law and international relations interrelate and how to use your legal knowledge in an international, diplomatic and political context. This degree specialises in two disciplines, increasing your career prospects with transferable skills and opportunities for work placements and study in European and American universities. With its expert staff and extensive resources, this course appeals to students from across the world. **More about this course** On this degree you’ll examine ideological and ethical questions about international relations as well as legal debates and policies, and have the opportunity to look at terrorism, the environment, poverty, nuclear proliferation, religion, human rights, cyber warfare, intelligence and the complex relationships between states. You’ll develop the capacity to think critically about events, ideas and institutions in a research culture that promotes academic inquiry and debate, and in your second and third year, you’ll be able to pursue your own areas of interest including power politics, foreign policy analysis, regional studies, security studies and the impact of globalisation. Taught by expert staff with extensive experience, this degree appeals to students both in the UK and overseas. You’ll enjoy regular lectures and presentations from practitioners such as Supreme Court judges, diplomats and politicians, and access to the opportunities that London offers such as visits to embassies, courts and the Houses of Parliament. There’s a strong emphasis on developing the essential skills sought by employers. This is achieved through targeted teaching sessions and hands-on experience, and the exciting opportunity to undertake a work placement in the final year. In previous years, students have undertaken placements with the European Union, the United Nations, aid agencies, think-tanks and embassies. It’s also possible to spend part of the course studying in another European country or the USA. **What our students say** “In the first year module, Contract Law, we had a fantastic staff that taught us the basics of law very well. The same with the EU law in the final year. Also in the International Relations subject area, modules had excellent teaching staff in all levels of the course.” National Student Survey 2016
