Overview

You will gain a thorough understanding of the theories, issues and concepts underpinning international human rights and, crucially, how they are put into practice.

Key facts:

  • Suitable for legal practitioners, aspiring legal professionals and human rights activists, this course will enable you to build upon your skillsets in project management, research, analysis, problem-solving and critical thinking within the field of human rights. This LLM programme will examine the rhetoric and reality of human rights using an issues-based approach. Taking an interdisciplinary and holistic approach, you will acquire a high level of specialist knowledge, informed by current thinking and debate.
  • With the human rights sector becoming increasingly competitive, employers are now asking for some experience as a prerequisite. London is one of the world centres for this sort of career, with most international non-governmental organisations (NGOs) having their headquarters here.
  • The Human Rights and Legal Practice course at the University of Roehampton will provide you with a strong academic grounding as well as the practical and vocational legal skills required for legal practice in the human rights field. You will also have the opportunity to undertake a work placement during your degree to develop your skills. After this course, you could work for a law firm, international organisation, government department, think-tank, non-governmental organisation, or a research and development organisation.
