LLM Intl Human Rights Law

Sussex Law School launched its LLM in International Human Rights Law in September 2015. We are currently taking applications for September 2017 (FT and PT). The Sussex LLM addresses the theory, history and development of international human rights law by studying its interconnection with international, regional and national systems of human rights protection. A range of optional modules are available to students, including a unique opportunity to put law into practice in the Human Rights Law Clinic module. We have a diverse student body, and welcome applications from those with a range of different experiences and backgrounds.

For further information, please consult the 2017 PG Prospectus. If you have any more specific queries or wish to discuss your suitability for the course, please contact the course convenor, Dr Elizabeth Craig.
