LLM - Master of Laws
Civil Law Personal Finance / Consumerism / Rights Legal Rights (Law) International Law
The LLM in International Human Rights Law provides students with an opportunity to gain an in-depth appreciation of global human rights standards and the interrelationship between international standards and national practice. In particular, we consider ways in which human rights could be protected more effectively so that human beings everywhere can realise their full human dignity.
The focus is on international and comparative human rights law (including at regional levels in Europe, Africa and the Americas). Students are taught by world-leading experts and the School's joint expertise is harnessed so as to provide a vibrant and relevant course which will stimulate the hearts as well as the minds of students who are taking it.
Graduates have found jobs in the UN, the EU and the Council of Europe, as well as statutory bodies and a wide range of international and national NGOs. Others have found the LLM to constitute an extremely valuable addition to their work as legal professionals. Furthermore, this Masters provides an excellent base for further study towards a research degree such as a PhD, which in turn may lead on to an academic career.
