Course summary

OVERVIEW

Societies in the twenty first century are constantly changing and the internal and external threats and opportunities to rights and justice are always evolving. As a Law team, we place great importance on equipping our students to be ready to help tackle these threats, and take advantages of these opportunities. Our new LLM course in Transnational Rights and Security is a perfect opportunity for you to develop your understanding of the key contemporary international legal issues, as well as identifying potential solutions on a national, international and transnational scale.

The course will help you to identify the ways in which organisations can tackle these issues and the contribution to the management of international human rights. This LLM programme will empower you to actively apply your own lived experiences and to critically develop by reflecting on the experiences of others.?It will be delivered via student-centred, active learning to equip you with the skills needed to?make a positive contribution to change in society.

Course Details

It is key to identify that the importance of balancing rights and security is very much a global 21st century issue.

The United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime considers transnational organised crime to be changing and flexible, and capable of taking advantage of the increased levels of globalization. This makes it more than a national priority, and so understanding how international, regional and national organisations are attempting to tackle the issue is a crucial step.

What are transnational rights and security?

Security and human rights are both well-established fields of study, both of which can be conceptualised nationally, regionally, internationally, or globally. Neither area exists in a vacuum, and both impact, and are impacted by, issues such as international criminality, religious intolerance and border control. Our focus on transnational rights and security allows us to take aholistic view of these areas, and explore the linkages between them.

How will I be assessed?

The course will be assessed through a mixture of methods. You will have time constrained pieces of work, which allow you to enhance your skills within strict operational time limits.

You will also submit research plans, allowing for the development of effective research strategies within your time of study and development. There will also be longer pieces of written work, and a dissertation, giving you the opportunity to explore a topic in more depth.

Finally, you will produce individual and group presentations within the course providing the opportunity to improve and develop core research and communication skills.
