About the course

Are you interested in how laws are made in other countries? Curious about how disputes are settled between nations with widely varying legal systems? Our International Law programme is an ideal choice if you’re aimed for a career in a field where an understanding of global issues would mean a head start. This is a hands-on degree which allows you to put your theory into practice, engaging with real-world problems and case studies. You can also choose to spend an extra year abroad, and study from an international perspective at one of our partner universities in Europe. In the final year, students can take the Law Clinic module and gain mentored work experience, providing legal advice to real clients.

Studying Law at Hull gives you the opportunity to get involved in a wealth of extracurricular activities. The Student Law Society runs an extensive programme of competitions in mooting, negotiating and client interviewing. Students can also get involved working in the editorial team of the Student Law Journal, to further develop knowledge and skills.
