This programme offers a range of units suitable both for those with some previous knowledge of human rights law and for those seeking an introduction to specific human rights law issues. Units cover the traditional fields of human rights law (e.g. International Law and Human Rights) and more specialist areas (e.g. Employment Rights, International Law of Labour and Social Rights, and Migration Law). Current students are encouraged to be actively involved in the Human Rights Implementation Centre.
We offer an exciting and stimulating set of postgraduate law programmes, each of which prepares you for a variety of careers. If you are interested in studying law beyond your undergraduate degree level and want to develop your analytical, research and legal writing skills, you will find Bristols LLM to be a challenging and rewarding experience. We have a large and vibrant international community and our LLM students benefit from small class sizes taught by world-renowned experts.
Our LLM programmes give you the opportunity to specialise in a particular area but you can also opt for a broader and more general set of unit choices. In all cases, you are encouraged to explore your chosen areas of law at a deeper level. You will have the chance to see how these legal fields operate in different contexts, considering the relevant issues theoretically and practically and from a range of perspectives.
