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.
