International Law @ Trinity College Dublin

Trinity College Dublin’s International Law programme is taught in one of the most prestigious law schools in Europe set in a 420 year old campus located in the heart of Dublin city.   Trinity’s  LLM programme has attracted and continues to attract top legal graduates from prestigious universities around the world, American students will come into contact with the sharpest legal minds of their generation, and be taught by leading Irish and International academics and practitioners.  The academically stimulating environment provided by Trinity College Law School is unparalleled and the scope of modules they provide enables the American student to truly commence a global legal career.

Trinity College Dublin offers a wide range of modules in their four taught LL.M. degree programmes which allow for specialisation, if a student so wishes. Our flagship LLM course is the general LL.M., but some students may wish to focus and streamline their studies through our LL.M. in International and Comparative Law, our LL.M. in International and European Business Law, LLM in Criminal Justice and LLM in International and European Intellectual Property Law.     The academically stimulating environment provided by Trinity College Law School is unparalleled in Ireland. 

Trinity’s programmes are taught by leading Irish lawyers, both academic and practising, offering students an unrivalled legal education. The Law School also cultivates a vibrant community between staff and students, inspired by mutual respect and co-operation. American students inevitably enjoy the warm and friendly atmosphere of our law school and revel in the exciting academic challenges.  

 The breadth of options available means that students will find modules which are of huge interest to them and which, in very many cases will not have been available to them in the law school in which they obtained their JD. For example, they can choose from:

  • Law and Bioethics
  • Financial Services and Banking Law
  • Aviation Law
  • International Humanitarian Law
  • Islamic Law
  • The Chinese Legal System and everything in between.   

 The Law School has a widespread reputation for rigorous legal scholarship and research, in Ireland and internationally. It has been the academic home, both as students and as former members of staff of leading legal luminaries as former President Mary McAleese, Mary Robinson former President of Ireland and United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and former South African government minister Kader Asmal. Their graduates include The Hon. Ms Chief Justice Susan Denham and Chief Justice of Ireland along with many other notable figures in public life in Ireland and further abroad.     Trinity College is ideally situated on the historic campus in the heart of Dublin city centre. Students can easily visit the courts and the Oireachtas (Irish Government Buildings) and keep a finger on the pulse of political and legal life in Ireland.  Furthermore, the scope of modules provides the American student with the knowledge to commence a global career in law firms, governmental bodies and a variety of industries.

Dublin is an ideal gateway to London and Brussels, and many graduates of the Law School go on to stellar careers in top International firms.  For American students interested in the European Union, Ireland is an English-speaking country with a strong involvement in the European project.   

Trinity’s LLM programmes offer an environment for academic excellence with a first class student experience in the beautiful campus of Trinity College Dublin.

Tuition Costs: €16,685
