UCD Sutherland School of Law is now inviting applications for our exciting LLM in International Human Rights. On this programme you will acquire specialised and in-depth knowledge and understanding of international human rights law, political theory of rights and international relations relating to human rights. This programme will equip graduates with the knowledge, skills and capacity to work in the field of human rights, either domestically or internationally, as practising lawyers, legal-advisers, policy-makers, advocates, researchers or academics.
The programme is interdisciplinary thus building on the strengths in this area of the Sutherland School of Law and the School of Politics and International Relations. Members of staff in the Sutherland School of Law have engaged in major research in this area spanning the full range of international human rights law from asylum law and practice, the EU and fundamental rights to the law of privacy in Ireland. The full suite of modules that those studying for an LLM in Human Rights can take is available here. In addition, students will have the opportunity to study Immigration and Asylum: Law, Politics and Rights.
