International Law and Affairs

International Law and Affairs Group

About us

Seeking to combine insights from both International Law and International Relations scholarship, the International Law and Affairs Group (ILAG) provides a forum for research and discussion for those interested in issues of public international law, broadly defined, at The City Law School.

These include the areas of international human rights, international economic law, and international criminal law. Reflecting its interdisciplinary approach to the study of the subject, the group also collaborates with a number of academics from the Department of International Politics at City University London.

We combine the research expertise and educational excellence of ILAG members to develop thorough and specialised educational courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

We offer a wide range of elective models available to LLB students and Graduate Entry LLB (GELLB) students. These include Public International Law, Human Rights Law, International Criminal Law, International Economic Law and International Commercial Arbitration. We also run an intensive and specialised LLM programme in Public International Law, using small-group teaching and providing modules in different fields.
