About the School

The study of the essence, norms, and efficacy of international law requires an understanding of the fact that both international law itself and the theoretical approaches surrounding it are in constant flux and cannot be confined to positivist discourse. This epistemological understanding serves as the theoretical core that unites our team of researchers and practicing professionals.

Faculty members focus on the ways in which international law functions ‘in action’. Students study the applications of legal norms, international court and arbitration procedures, and rulings. Research projects span a wide range of topics including international trade, investment and economic integration, measures of coercion and sanctions, the use of force, cyber operations, international immunities, human rights, international crime, corruption, terrorism, as well as environmental protection.

The School is home two laboratories—the Laboratory on the protection of state interests in the context of economic sanctions, and the Laboratory of International Justice—as well as the research group, ‘International Law in the Cyber Age’. The School conducts a research seminar series and organizes international research events including conferences, round tables, and seminars.

Our team participates in all undergraduate law programmes taught at the Faculty of Law and supervises the English-language track 'International Law'. The School offers two Master's programmes: 'International Trade, Finance and Economic Integration Law' and 'Compliance and Legal Risk Prevention in the Corporate, Government and Non-Profit Sector'. As part of the Postgraduate School, the School conducts training in profiles related to International Law and International procedure.
