LLM - Human Rights Law

Our LLM in Human Rights Law reflects an area of law that is critical in providing the frameworks necessary to protect the dignity of human beings around the world. It offers you an opportunity to graduate and meet a growing demand for specialist lawyers that have human rights experience and knowledge – and a determination to tackle human rights violations.

The LLM in Human Rights Law offers in-depth, intensive study of institutions and mechanisms at the international and regional levels, as well as more specialist areas such as employment law, mental health law and law around migrant workers, with a variety of related optional units to choose from.

Choosing the LLM in Human Rights Law means being challenged and inspired by academics from the Human Rights Implementation Centre, globally renowned for its groundbreaking research and work across the world. The Centre offers many opportunities for students to gain knowledge and experience in human rights law and practice, including participation in the Human Rights Law Clinic.

The intellectually demanding, research-rich curriculum we deliver makes our graduates stand out, able to demonstrate excellent legal, analytical and research skills. Our students go on to act as solicitors, barristers, lawyers and researchers in international and European organisations, such as the United Nations or the European Commission. A number work for governments, NGOs and other agencies. Some graduates go on to further study or research.
