Law plays an increasingly important role in addressing the dangers caused by global challenges. This programme focusses 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.
