Course content

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 pathway connects research in law, social science and contemporary politics to provide you with a solid grounding in international human rights and international humanitarian law. You'll focus on responses to violations of these legal regimes through transitional justice and international criminal justice. You will learn how these issues are addressed in the context of conflict-affected countries, where human rights and international law violations often arise.

You'll also have the chance to choose from a wide range of optional modules to supplement this core teaching, and opt to either write a 15,000 word dissertation or conduct a work-based project that will give you valuable experience of dealing with a specific legal issue in detail.

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 benefit from a legal education in their career.
