International Law at Westminster – ILaW

Westminster Law School is located in the heart of London and is a centre of excellence for the study and research of international law.

Academics and PhD students at Westminster contribute in many areas of international legal scholarship, including: international legal theory, international human rights law, the law of armed conflict, international law of the sea, international refugee law, international courts and tribunals, international energy law, United Nations law, international criminal law, nuclear non-proliferation law, cyber security law, and international environmental law.

International Law at Westminster is a member of the EU Non-Proliferation Consortium. The Consortium was created in 2010 by the Council of the European Union as a network bringing together experts from across the EU to encourage political and security-related dialogue and the long-term discussion of measures to combat the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and their delivery systems.

Westminster Law School offers a well-established LLM in International Law for students who want to develop their expertise in this subject area and we welcome PhD proposals on international law topics.

International Law at Westminster organises public events on topical issues. To receive information about future events, please contact Dr Marco Longobardo.
