Overview

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.

You’ll also have the chance to choose from a wide range of optional modules to supplement this core teaching, and opt to either write a 15,000 word dissertation or conduct a work-based project that will give you valuable experience of dealing with a specific legal issue in detail.

As such, the Transitional Justice and Conflict course, offered by University of East London, 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.

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.
