International Law

International law governs the binding relations between nations. While it may be argued that international law is one of the relatively newer specializations in law—what with the United Nations, which set its current framework, only created in 1945—international law goes way back. Which is not surprising, considering that has always been a need for nations, be they from the ancient times or the contemporary era, to form binding relationships with each other. International law is an exciting and high-paying practice that many lawyers are aiming for. Theories in international law gives us profound insights how international diplomacy and treaties work, for example, and a student of Master in International Law will explore these issue in depth.

International law can be further divided into three sub-disciplines: public international law, which concerns itself with the explicit relationship of nations and transnational entities with each other and among themselves; private international law, which answers questions of criminal jurisdiction, cross-border law enforcement, extradition et cetera; and supranational law, which is the set of rules that governs transnational entities, like the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund and the European Union.

Students of Master in International Law will study, among other thing, international lawmaking, international arbitration, economic sanctions, international trade, mutual defense, history of international law and armistices. Graduates of a Master in International Law program should be able to provide sound counsel to states in conducting diplomacy, trade and law enforcement; they are also highly important to individual appellants and plaintiffs, especially in cases of state-acted human rights abuses, extradition, asylum, political detention, and more.

LLM - Master of International Human Rights and Humanitarian Law

European University Viadrina in Frankfurt (ODER) - Faculty of Law
Campus Full time Part time 3 semesters October 2017 Germany Frankfurt (Oder) + 1 more

The Master’s program prepares graduates for taking up career opportunities in policy making, international, public and governmental service, public and private legal practice, work for non-governmental organisations, and academic teaching and research. [+]

Masters in International Law. This postgraduate program provides advanced study of the international protection of fundamental human rights. The curriculum integrates general human rights protection in times of peace and war with the special protection of basic rights in situations of armed conflict (under international humanitarian law). Such an approach is especially important as the boundary between war and peace becomes increasingly blurred. Such a blurring of the boundary is the result from many different circumstances including: the rise of terrorism, the diversity in its cause and nature and wide scope of possible reactions to it; the often unclear boundary between situations of civil war, external aggression, guerrilla action and even domestic policing; the reliance on both official (Security Council-sanctioned) and unofficial (sometimes invited) peace-keeping forces in a broad range of conflict situations. Confusion in drawing a clear line may even emerge from humanitarian military intervention in the name of the defence of human rights itself. Responses to various forms of civil unrest (often itself provoked by alleged breaches of human rights) or states of emergency (whether of political or natural origin) including, for example, the establishment of a state of martial law, or merely reliance upon domestic or even foreign military forces to assert control or provide assistance expands the range of situations which are difficult to categorise. Beyond this, national intelligence services may conduct operations (whether at home or abroad) with (quasi-)military character but which formally, not invoke the regulatory framework of humanitarian law. Reliance on mercenary forces... [-]
