Course summary

Course Summary

A master’s degree in law is a fantastic way for law graduates to develop a specialisation, or for non-lawyers working in related fields to gain a deeper understanding of legal issues. This pathway connects research in law, social science and contemporary politics to provide you with a solid grounding in international human rights and international humanitarian law. You’ll focus on responses to violations of these legal regimes through transitional justice and international criminal justice. You will learn how these issues are addressed in the context of conflict-affected countries, where human rights and international law violations often arise.

The course is perfect for lawyers and law graduates looking for career development, although all of our LLM courses can be studied by students without a background in law, since you will be trained in the necessary analytical and legal skills. As such, the programme will also provide ideal training for paralegals, journalists, NGO and charity workers, policy advisors, consultants, lawyers, those working in business and finance or anyone who will benefit from a legal education in their career.

How you'll learn

All our LLM courses are taught through a combination of lectures, seminars and workshops. We extensively use problem-based learning, class discussion and case studies to ensure our teaching is brought to life, while all our lectures are issued as podcasts to give you greater access to learning resources and allow you to revisit specific classes.

Your Future Career

This pathway will leave you well-prepared to pursue a career in transitional justice, international criminal justice, and human rights, in both the domestic and international sphere. Specialists may go on to work for NGOs, legal firms that specialise in transitional justice, international institutions like the UN or European Court of Human Rights, as well as non-legal professions that require expertise in law and conflict, including journalism, policy advice and charity work.

The course also allows you to undertake a work-based project so you can gain practical experience and build professional links, while our renowned Law Clinic enables you to work on real legal cases with local people to enhance your clinical skills while you study.
