Enroll in International Law from LouvainX at https://www.edx.org/course/international-law-louvainx-louv5x

International law is one of the fastest growing legal fields. Learn how International law is made, applied and enforced, and learn about its basic rules.

About this Course
International law can be considered as the law of the international community, the law that governs relations between States. But it also relates to what international organizations do and, increasingly, it concerns individuals, corporations, NGO’s and other non-state actors.

As the world becomes more interdependent and more complex, and as new institutions are put in place to make international law real and more effective, international law is an exciting expanding field. Never before has it been so much relied upon, used and developed. Despite their differences in size, power, culture, religion and ideologies, states rely on international law to cooperate and to coexist; they speak the language of international law and international law serves them as an important common language.

At the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

Explain how and by whom international law is made, by whom it must be respected and how it is applied.
Discuss what happens when binding rules are breached and how is it possible to seek justice in this world.
The course will extensively rely on judgments and advisory opinions of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), which is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations (UN).

Having acquired this basic knowledge of international law, you’ll find it easier to study by yourself in books or through other courses or MOOCs some sub-fields of international law, like international humanitarian law, investment law, human rights or refugee law.

So, if you want to understand what is international law, what role it plays in the world of today, how it can be used or if you want to be able to discern legal arguments within the flow of international news and reports, this course is for you.

Public International Law: An Introduction – Part 1: the nature, sources and subjects of international law.

This series of videos follows the structure of the subjects treated in textbook ‘Internationaal Publiekrecht in vogelvlucht’ by Kooijmans et al. (Deventer, 2008) and so is suitable for students who use this textbook, but draws its information from a vast array of open, freely accessible sources (Wikipedia included). While I take great care to avoid factual errors in my presentations, anything said in these videos should not be taken at face value, but rather you should use these videos to support your understanding of the material.

Prof. Dr. Anne Peters, LL.M. (Director of the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg) is one of the best known and most innovative international law scholars in the world. She was the president of the European Society of International Law and she worked at the Venice Commision on the Council of Europe. Professor Peters has published extensively in the area of International Law.

At the Institute of International Relations Professor Peters spoke about the use of force against the Islamic State from the legal point of view. Could the collective self-defense of Iraq serve as justification of US-led military actions against ISIS? Are these actions legal? Can we blame Syria for insufficient activity? Is the use of force for collective self-defense authorized by the UN Charter? And where is the once so popular responsibility to protect by humanitarian intervention?

Listen to Anne Peters and the following discussion!

Traditionally international law and international relations have been taught as discrete subjects, in spite of their close relationship. The LLM in International Law with International Relations aims to provide a level of integration that will allow each discipline to be informed by the other. Such an interdisciplinary approach will be particularly appropriate to the needs of those involved with, or hoping to work for international non-government agencies, foreign affairs departments and international law firms. The course is particularly concerned with international humanitarian law.

This programme enables students both to understand and evaluate public international law and its role and potential (and limitations) in international affairs, and it considers the theoretical bases of international law. The purpose of the programme is to provide an advanced training by way of coursework, in the general methods, scope, and theories of international law with an emphasis upon international humanitarian law and international relations. Consequently, students will be able either to develop their undergraduate specialisation or to receive a programme of training that will allow them to transfer their knowledge of other fields to that of international law, international relations and conflict analysis.
