LLM programme in International Law - Maynooth University (Blended Learning) **New for 2023**

Posted on 27 Jan 2023


The School of Law and Criminology at Maynooth University has launched a new LLM programme in International Law. This programme is offered in a blended learning format over 2 years to facilitate flexibility of learning. A Postgraduate Diploma in International Law, where students undertake taught modules, but not a Dissertation, is also being offered.

Programme Outline

The LLM in International Law (Blended Learning Offering) provides students with a flexible pathway towards gaining critical insights into the operation of international law. It offers a critique of international law frameworks and institutions and an analysis of how the international legal order works and how it seeks to protect vulnerable groups, including minorities and refugees.

Flexible Programme Delivery

Teaching is delivered mostly online in an asynchronous format. Online learning will be supported by a number of face-to-face workshops and masterclasses each semester (which will also be recorded).

The programme is offered on a part-time basis over 2 years, providing maximum flexibility, and allowing students to combine the programme with full-time work.

Who Should Apply?

The programme will, in particular, be of use and interest to those already working in the field of law, including barristers, solicitors and civil servants who want to upskill in the area of international law and those with an NGO background who want to expand their knowledge of international law. Applications are welcome from candidates with a minimum 2.2 honours degree in law or cognate disciplines, though applications from other candidates with prior experiential learning may be considered.
