Course content

Human Rights is increasingly becoming a subject of both national and international importance, with many countries now endeavouring to ensure that their legal systems embody a full respect for citizens’ human rights and the growth of international protocols, such as that leading to the establishment of the International Criminal Court, those securing the rights of minority populations and indigenous groups, and the creation of international conventions designed to tackle Human Trafficking.

The LLM Programme in Human Rights reflects established areas of research strength in the School of Law, and offers options which are of international relevance and which meet the demand for studying contemporary human rights issues at an advanced level. This programme allows students to combine specialist topics of domestic and universal fundamental rights.
