LLB Global Law and Globalisation

Student studying lecture notes on the grass on campus

Module description:

The module will explore and evaluate various conceptualisations of Global Law and will focus on a range of contemporary global legal issues.

In particular, the module will outline the concepts, sources, subjects, rights and events which shape and challenge existing understandings of International Law and/or processes of globalisation, and which can be said to constitute a new field of Global Law.

The aim of this course is to introduce students to interdisciplinary approaches to Global and International Law and to develop critical legal thinking skills about global issues, events and developments. Students will apply critical theoretical frameworks to various case studies.
