Course summary

Overview

This course is designed to enable students to specialise in subjects related to human rights law, equipping them with comprehensive knowledge of international and regional human rights regimes and mechanisms, and critical assessment of their suitability to address contemporary challenges, such as the impact of business on the enjoyment of rights.

Why study LLM/PGDip/PGCert Human Rights Law at Middlesex University?

In light of COVID-19 and the need to prioritise a safe academic community, we will offer a blended learning model that will involve online teaching and learning delivered by our expert academics, as well as opportunities for face-to-face teaching on-campus each week. All such decisions will be made in line with Government advice.

You will deepen and broaden your knowledge of law as an academic subject; acquiring a systematic understanding of legal processes, methods and concepts, of the social and political context in which legal processes take place and of appropriate theoretical conceptions of law.

By maximising your academic potential and refining your problem-solving skills in a transnational context through the acquisition of systematic and critical understanding of complex legal, economic, cultural, ethical and political issues informing the creation of international and regional human rights frameworks, institutions and practice you will enhance your professional development and horizons.

The research and writing skills you gain will be transferable to a variety of professional sectors, including the legal profession, policymaking, corporate sector, governmental bodies or academia.

Careers

How can the LLM/PGDip/PGCert Human Rights Law support your career?

In-depth knowledge of human rights law equips students with skills across several legal disciplines and opens career possibilities in public and private bodies working in sectors concerning public law, family law, discrimination, immigration, housing, actions against the police, employment or business law. This programme is particularly aimed at students who are interested in human rights-related work and/or who wish to influence policies to ensure the enjoyment of human rights at national, regional and international level. Many have also continued their higher education studies via a PhD.

As well as access to the University's Employability Service students are offered specialist advice by the Programme Leader and other contributors to the programme, including guidance on how to enter and pass recruitment processes for national and international organisations. Students have access to the support services offered by the Clinical Legal Education programme and are invited to attend career-focused workshops, skills sessions and events.

Our team of world renowned lecturers will provide the latest thinking and practice on legal issues. Our students benefit from their considerable network of contacts and connections within their sectors, notably for internship opportunities within international and domestic organisations, such as the United Nations, our on-campus litigation centre, the European Human Rights Advocacy Centre (EHRAC), the Legal Advice Centre, and a range of local companies providing professional legal services.

Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.
