When it comes to your career, the sky’s the limit. You want to take your legal know-how to the next level and go global.

As a postgraduate International Law student at ARU, you’ll learn the key principles of private and public international law, and develop an understanding of how transnational commercial, political and social interactions are regulated.

Our optional modules give you the opportunity to specialise in aspects of international law you’re particularly interested in. For example, you could develop your expertise in Globalisation and World Trade, International Commercial Arbitration, Comparative Company Law or Digital Economy.

You’ll further tailor your degree to your interests with your Major Project, which is a brilliant opportunity for you to find out more about an area of international law you’re passionate about.

Hands-on experience

As an LLM International Law student, you’ll have access to:

  • our Cambridge Law Clinic, where you can volunteer to help members of the public
  • ARU’s student-led Law Society, which takes part in national competitions.

Outstanding student support

Join our postgraduate student community and:

  • benefit from award-winning learning facilities, including extensive library and IT resources
  • learn from expert staff who will guide your research interests and career development
  • receive full support from our Employability Service, while you're studying with us and after you graduate
  • access support, should you need it, with study skills, health and wellbeing, and more.


On our LLM International Law course, you’ll develop a range of in-demand professional skills including logical reasoning, critical analysis, research, and independent judgement.

You’ll also gain an understanding of the complex interplay between infrastructure, content, competition, social policy, punishment and trade in the international arena, and a greater capacity for legal communication.

You’ll therefore be well-prepared for international practice and academic research at the highest level as well as a range of other intellectually demanding roles, such as working for international NGOs and other agencies, or public service.

You can boost your employability while you study by volunteering at our Law Clinic, as well as taking advantage of law-focussed careers events.

Graduation doesn’t have to be the end of your time with us. You could choose to continue your academic career with a research programme at ARU, such as our PhD Law. Take advantage of our Alumni Scholarship and save £400 on your fees.
