You will be provided with a thorough grounding in human rights law, as well as the opportunity to pursue more specialist interests such as economic and social rights, business and human rights, or imprisonment and human rights.
The School of Law has a particular strength in human rights law, and many academic staff are internationally recognised for their research in the area. They have advised governments, collaborated with various international organisations including the United Nations and the Council of Europe, and joined forces with NGOs in their human rights advocacy work. This blend of academic endeavour and practical work is often brought to the classroom, so you can see how human rights law can have an impact on the ground.
The school is also home to the Human Rights Law Centre, one of the world's most respected academic human rights institutions. It carries out its work through research, training, publications and capacity building, collaborating with governments, inter-governmental organisations, academics, students and civil society, alongside implementing programmes in Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.The centre is a focal point for student activity in human rights. It hosts an annual international student conference and human rights film series, as well as internship bursaries and research assistance opportunities.
