Overview

In addition students are introduced to a number of contemporary problems of world order that require the application of the foundational rules and structures to develop awareness of both the limitations and potential of international law as a tool for change.

Students will leave the International Law course at SOAS University of London with the capacity to address international legal problems with confidence as well as awareness of specific contemporary issues and how international law is dealing with emergent and on-going concerns including: the relationship between business and human rights; refugees; technology; feminism; and the use of force outside of the collective security structures. 

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of the course, a student should be able to demonstrate:

  • Understanding of the foundations of international law, including the sources of international law, statehood, state immunity, and state responsibility for breaches of international obligations;
  • Capacity for critical interrogation of specific regimes within international law, in particular international environmental law; law of the sea; international human rights law; international criminal law; and collective security structures;
  • Ability to reflect and engage with the spaces for transformation of international law to address persistent inequalities within the global order.
