  • Overview

    Public International Law is a complex area of law, dealing with the system of laws created by States, courts
    and tribunals operating at international, regional and national levels. This module addresses that complexity
    by examining the sources of international law and the subjects of that law before addressing the question of
    sovereignty. This question is addressed both at a territorial level, which allows for a discussion of land,
    sea and other areas, and at a state level, which allows for a discussion of issues such as jurisdiction,
    privileges and immunities and state responsibility. Having addressed the complexity, the module concludes
    with a case study on the use of force in international law.
