Pre-requisites: LAW347

Aims/Description: International Legal Theory and Practice seeks to raise students' appreciation of the various theoretical perspectives that underpin public international law. Through an analysis of such approaches as Natural law, positivism, the 'New Haven' policy-school, critical legal studies, and feminism, the unit encourages students to consider their own views on the theoretical basis of public international law.
