This course is ideally suited to students from a law, history, politics, or other social sciences background.

It is designed to provide the specialist skills and in-depth knowledge that will be attractive to employers in the areas of international legal practice and international development as well as those who intend to pursue careers in international governmental and non-governmental organisations.

As well as the LLM in International Human Rights Law, we offer four other specialised LLM courses: International Trade and Commercial Law, International Law, International Economic Law, and International Law, Globalisation and Development.
