Introduction

Global challenges, like cyberattacks, money laundering, human rights violations and terrorism are on the rise. People’s lives are affected by global and national insecurity. Law plays an increasingly important role in addressing the dangers caused by global challenges. This programme focuses on the use of law in personal, national, and global security. It teaches students how to fact-find, conduct research, strategically negotiate and lead when it comes to addressing international security matters. It looks at how the world has been changed by geopolitics, the pandemic, rising energy and food prices and technology, and how the law can be used to resolve these issues. Students are provided with a dynamic environment in which to learn, with the programme making use of lectures, seminars, mooting, gamification, talks, experts, and other methods. Students will also learn about professionalism, strategy, independence, resilience, and strong leadership.

This programme is aimed at training future lawyers and other participants on how to effectively use the law when it comes to contemporary matters of global security.

The programme is oriented towards:

  • Providing students with the skills needed to apply the law to issues of global security, including legal research and case strategy;
  • Looking at how global and national institutions can be used to address key global security concerns;
  • Training on skills that can be applied or transferred across several different occupations;
  • Examining contemporary matters of global concern to people across the world, using experiential methods;
  • Working with international partner organisations to provide students with the opportunities to look at global security issues in context

Upon completion of your studies, you will be able to analyse evidence, conduct legal research, use the law, including in advocacy and negotiation, apply case strategy and demonstrate leadership. The programme aims to expand your career opportunities, grow your global network, and help you obtain vital legal and soft skills, such as teamwork, time management and creative problem-solving.

The programme is composed of 210 ECTS in three groups of subjects: global security, international and domestic law, and legal and other competencies. The full list of compulsory and optional courses is below.

Specialists in law and global security are in demand across the world. Institutions such as the United Nations, the European Union, the Organization for European Economic Cooperation, NATO, and others require people who have strong legal skills in the international environment. Graduates of this programme can look widely for roles in international and national institutions, dealing with national and global security issues, both in the public and private sectors, especially those concerned with human rights, compliance, anti-money laundering issues, energy and other forms of security.
