Proelium Law LLP and University of Liverpool

by | Oct 16, 2017 | Proelium News

Proelium Law LLP is proud to work with the University of Liverpool (UoL) to develop both an undergraduate degree course and post graduate degree.

Proelium Law taught the first module on armed conflict at the UoL London Campus last September, which was a great success. The Master’s degree, in High-Risk Operations and Governance, is a unique blend of academic rigour with practitioner skills and is very much aimed at becoming the industry standard for those who need a postgraduate qualification for their work in international development, security or defence.

Please contact us or visit the course webpage if you would like to find out more.
