International Human Rights Law and Practice LLM

Study Details

LLM 1 year Full-time, LLM 2 years Part-time

The LLM in Human Rights Law and Practice provides the knowledge, skills and networks necessary for mid-career professionals and recent graduates to work in the human rights field. The LLM is offered on both a full-time and part-time basis.

Our LLM is distinctive because students: Work on real human rights issues, which gives practical skills, hands-on experience and improved job prospects; get the opportunity to work alongside human rights defenders during a two-week field visit to Malaysia (student numbers permitting) or placement in York; learn from international human rights defenders based at the Centre; and explore how international human rights law interacts with national public policy in various states.

Entry Requirements

Applicants will normally be expected to have obtained an undergraduate degree with honors (2:1 or higher, or its equivalent). Some academic study or practical experience of law is desirable though not required.

If you are a non-native English speaking applicant you must provide evidence of your English language ability. You need to show enough fluency in all aspects of English (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to the required level of the course you're applying to. For more information, see:
