Course Summary

A master’s degree in law is a fantastic way for law graduates to develop a specialisation, or for non-lawyers working in related fields to gain a deeper understanding of legal issues. This LLM pathway is a unique course that allows you to specialise in human rights from a highly practical perspective; the focus on advocacy translates into valuable clinical skills that enable you to put your knowledge of human rights law into practice. You’ll study the core principles of human rights advocacy, rooted in knowledge of the European Convention on Human Rights, developing expertise in an increasingly vital area of law that has implications for individuals throughout the world facing discrimination and persecution.

The course is perfect for lawyers and law graduates looking for career development, although all of our LLM courses can be studied by students without a background in law, since you will be trained in the necessary analytical and legal skills. As such, the programme will also provide ideal training for paralegals, journalists, NGO and charity workers, policy advisors, consultants, lawyers, those working in business and finance, or anyone who will built from a legal education in their career. This project, paired with the advocacy training in your core modules, ensures you graduate with an in-depth knowledge of human rights law backed by strong practical competence in legal practice. This pathway takes advantage of our long-standing expertise in Human Rights, so you’ll be learning about crucial, contemporary topics in the field from leading experts. The Centre on Human Rights in Conflict – based at UEL – does important work to protect human rights in regions suffering the consequences of war, and many of our academics work for other leading research groups in the field.
