Question Use of Force - Important ?

Dear Seniors and fellow aspirants,

I am a law graduate myself and to my knowledge, Use-of-Force, Self-Defence, War and Armed-Conflicts feature as major or important topics of Public International Law.

However, going through the past papers I am surprised that questions on these topics have been largely overlooked by fpsc.

My questions are: What do you knowledgeable people think? Can these topics be regarded as less relevant and a calculated risk be taken by skipping them?

there has been one or two questions asked on use of force in past paper but you are also right. Despite it being a very important topic, fpsc hardly asked it in papers. But i would not suggest you to skip this topic and prepare it as material from this question can be used elsewhere in I.L paper. Also while preparing this question do have a glance at case laws. Sometimes examiner asks you to write a short note on famous case laws.
