International law deals with relations between nations and states also known as law of nations. The study field can be split into 3 three disciplines: public international law, private international law and supranational law. International law has a broad spectrum of issues. It deals with the legal interactions between nations, companies, governments, assuring their proper rights. National law becomes international law when national jurisdiction is delegated to supranational tribunals by treaties. The main substantive fields of international law are: international economic law, international security law, international criminal law, international environmental law, diplomatic law, international humanitarian law, international human rights law and international law of war.

With the Law A Level course you will learn how the law is created and administered. The study of law - fundamental to the smooth running of society - is a challenging but rewarding field. The law is highly complex and far-reaching, governing our behaviour and the ways we interact with institutions and each other in ways we may not even be aware of. Studying law is a way to learn how to analyse situations and apply legal rules and principles to make sense of the world.
Security was conventionally considered in terms of protecting a sovereign territory through armed force. In this light, the state and its survival were the central maxims. However, over the last two decades, new sources of (in-) security have become the focus for both academics and policy makers, widening the security agenda to include such issues as climate change, global pandemics and poverty. Moreover, the post-Cold War world has witnessed the resurfacing of large-scale ethnic violence and genocide as well as the apparent ascendance of global terrorist networks and a highly controversial ‘War on Terror’.
Justice is to be done regardless of money, race, etc., but also regardless of gender. However, the law, including international law, is not a perfect system, and just like the people who made it, it is biased. This interactive, one-week course will look at law from a gender perspective, encompassing cis, gay, trans and intersex perspectives. The focus is primarily on human rights but will cut across other areas of international law, such as refugee law. Through lectures, excursion(s), and group assignments, topical issues will be explored and analysed, linking theory and practice.
