Sussex Centre for Human Rights Research

LLM Intl Human Rights Law

The LLM in International Human Rights Law offered by Sussex Law School is closely linked to the Sussex Centre for Human Rights Research. Our LLM attracts students from across the globe, and current students include human rights practitioners and activists. This ensures a vibrant and dynamic learning experience, where students not only learn from tutors but also from each other. In Spring 2019, the current cohort organised off-timetable sessions where they taught each other about a specific human rights challenge of particular interest to them.

In addition to being invited to participate in the activities of the Sussex Centre for Human Rights Research, students are also able to benefit from the expertise of Centre members through our broad variety of optional modules (see here for an up to date list of our optional modules). Notably, students are given a unique opportunity to put law into practice in the Human Rights Law Clinic module. 

The LLM in International Human Rights Law accepts applications for study on a full time and part time basis. We have a diverse student body, and welcome applications from those with a range of different experiences and backgrounds.
