Course summary

Many believe international human rights law is one of our greatest moral achievements. However, huge gaps remain between the theory and the practice of human rights implementation.

Sussex Law School provides an international, stimulating and engaging learning environment. You’ll study the interconnections between international human rights law and regional and national systems of human rights protection. In addition to studying legal texts such as treaties, declarations and case law, you’ll explore critiques of rights as well as the legal and practical context behind contemporary issues and challenges.

You’ll build a rich base of knowledge in human rights. Many of our staff undertake interdisciplinary human rights research. This is a research strength at Sussex and is reflected in our teaching. You’ll engage with this growing team of established human rights researchers and get involved with the Sussex Centre for Human Rights Research.

We’ll also prepare you for your future career, and you can take advantage of the opportunities provided by the Human Rights Law Clinic.

CAREERS

This LLM is ideal if you wish to achieve a law-oriented postgraduate qualification in human rights and want to go on to a career in law or human rights advocacy.

The international and comparative nature of this course means that you will be well placed to seek employment in the UK and overseas in organisations such as:

  • international law firms
  • governments
  • international organisations
  • NGOs.
