International Law is the law of the international community and in our globalized world, it is an expanding field and international politics cannot be understood today without some knowledge of the legal constraints bearing on it.
With this International Law MicroMasters program, you’ll master the language and institutions of international law. The MicroMasters program will give you a clear understanding of the ways by which international law exists as a legal order and bears on domestic governance (human rights), war (law of armed conflicts) and the economy (investment law). You’ll learn to decode international news from a legal perspective and to understand the legal rules at play in specific professional fields of international relations (diplomacy, humanitarian aid, NGOs...).
If you’re not a lawyer, you’ll become able to interact with professional lawyers in an articulate way.
If you already graduated in law, political sciences or international relations, you might even become interested in taking your program certificate to the next level and become an advanced master student at Louvain!
Your MicroMasters program certificate will be worth 20 credits out of the 60 credits needed to complete the advanced master. 33% of study time saved!
*Beware, this program is currently offered until August 31st, 2022. If you'd like to get the certificate for the MicroMasters in International Law program, you need to pass, in the certificating track, all 4 courses by Aug 31st, 2022.*
