The international and comparative law specialisation provides you with advanced legal knowledge across a broad spectrum of legal issues with international significance. These range across broad issues of public international law, international human rights and humanitarian law, international criminal law and justice, international commercial and comparative law and international trade and finance law, and the impact of international legal frameworks.

Your in-depth studies will enable you to work in non-government organisations (NGOs), government and industry (domestically or internationally) in positions that call for knowledge and understanding of international legal frameworks.
