Course content

The LLM International Law and Human Rights gives you the essential legal toolkit within which the intensification of globalisation and associated global challenges can be understood and critically analyzed. Academic staff working at the forefront of a number of international and human rights law disciplines will lead you through the challenges that the global community faces, and how law hinders or helps in their resolution.

Through the LLM International Law and Human Rights programme you can access the specialized knowledge and practical know-how that you will need to pursue a career in international or human rights law practice whether in the governmental, non-governmental or private commercial sector.

The LLM International Law and Human Rights programme develops your theoretical understanding of global legal frameworks and the practical legal skills required to analyse contemporary problems through international or human right law lenses.

There are many careers for which a thorough understanding of international conventions, state responsibility or international dispute settlement, legal obligations in armed conflicts or human rights responsibilities of state or private commercial actors is fundamental or taken an essential background assumption.
