University of Manchester invites applications for LLM Security and International Law

The University of Manchester is now inviting applications from Indian students for their LLM in Security and International Law for the 2024 session.

The LLM in Security and International Law from the University of Manchester allows students to develop advanced knowledge of the regulatory frameworks necessary to secure international relations and transactions between states, non-state entities, multinational companies, and individuals. This course is premised on the idea that governing security at an international level requires not only the regulation of the use of force and methods of warfare, but also the regulation of international investments, international financial transactions, and intellectual property.

This holistic approach to the concept of security is at the heart of this course and offers a unique opportunity for you to gain expertise that is relevant to today’s changing global landscape.

Talking about the course Dr Yusra Suedi, Lecturer in International Law said, “Few international legal issues are as complex, pressing and topical as those related to security in modern international law. This unique programme offers a deep dive into the realm of ever-evolving security issues across the discipline, giving students excellent employability prospects across diverse industries, and the knowledge and skills to tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges.”

Programme delivery: The course is based on small-group, seminar-style teaching by our research-active teaching staff, as well as invited external experts. The LLM course will typically offer around 30 different course units in any one year and will always reflect a wide range of subjects across the legal spectrum.
