Description

Our LLMs from our our new Master’s in Law suite of programmes are designed for law and non-law graduates who want to explore the practical application of a particular, specialist area of the law. Study face to face or online.

Our LLM in International Human Rights Law Online has been designed to cover areas such as the general principles of international human rights, the relationship between human rights law and humanitarian law, and the limitations and future of international and domestic human rights.

This course is delivered entirely online. The full-time options are divided into three terms over one calendar year, while the part-time options are divided over six terms in two calendar years. There is an online induction at the beginning of each course.

When you study a Master’s online with us you will:

  • Be taught by subject matter experts, former and current practitioners and research and teaching focused academics
  • Focus on legal practice, not just theory
  • Benefit from strategic partnerships with firms, regulators and accreditation bodies
  • Learn about Legal Technology by selecting to study modules in legal technology
  • Improve your employability by gaining important transferable skills and mapping your career with our careers team

The award-linked module for this programme (International Human Rights) will also consider the tension between universality and cultural relativism of human rights. The aim of this module is to put human rights in the context of an international setting, enabling you to learn how to apply complex theoretical concepts to real world client situations. With expert guidance from experienced professionals, you’ll get to explore a variety of important issues surrounding the protection of individuals and societies in many situations around the world.

In addition to a general induction to the programme, there is a two-week induction covering the Key Principles of the English Legal System. This is compulsory for non-law students, but also open to law students wanting a refresher in the fundamentals of the law of England and Wales. This would be useful for any student who has taken a considerable break from legal education.
