LLM/PG Dip in International Development Law and Human Rights

On this course you’ll examine the theories and practices of development, social justice and human rights within and across nations. Among the themes explored are the implications of globalisation and its governance regimes, the feminisation of impoverishment, humanitarian and displacement issues, development and human rights, and the implications of environmental degradation.

You’ll develop knowledge, theory and practical skills across the field of international development and human rights law, with the option to specialise further in particular areas. We benefit from close associations with the Centre for Human Rights in Practice, providing you with opportunities to undertake research, capacity-building and other project work aimed at the global promotion of human rights.

Our graduates have developed careers as lawyers and activists in the areas of social justice and human rights; governmental and NGO policy-making; or as academics in law, politics and related fields.
