Studying the combination of diplomacy and international law prepares students brilliantly to engage with the real world and to try and make a difference.
There has never been a more important time to study international law and diplomacy. In an age of changing realities, there is a high demand for graduates capable of navigating the challenges that shape our international society. Are you ready?
The Master of International Law and Diplomacy is a joint degree that addresses needs arising from the unique dynamics of the current political and business environment where policy, law and dispute resolution intersect.
International law and diplomacy don’t operate in a vacuum in our modern world. Now, they don’t need to in your degree, either.
It also equips future leaders of both diplomatic and legal practice with knowledge and skills – such as critical analysis, strategic thinking and cross-cultural communication – to succeed in a changing geo-political world.
You will be taught by internationally recognised scholars from both The Australian National University (ANU) College of Law and the Asia-Pacific College of Diplomacy. You will also learn from senior diplomatic and international legal practitioners with a specific focus on transnational diplomacy, roles of non-state actors, negotiation and conflict resolution, international law principles and more.
You will graduate from ANU, a world-class university, positioning you firmly in the centre of a global network of leading diplomatic and international legal scholars and policy-makers.
ANU is ranked #1 in Australia, globally #8 for Politics and International Studies and #17 for Law.
