Rights, Gender and International Law

This course provides a comprehensive overview of international law regarding human rights and gender issues, and how these critically important legal subjects impact in the world today. This course balances the theory with the urgently practical - for example, the detatched, academic knowledge of law may be taught through examining difficult case studies which are anything but clear-cut. By doing so, students are challenged to engage with the subject and face the dilemmas of authentic legal practice in the real world. An important part of the course is the writing of a detailed dissertation within the specialism of your choice. In your dissertation you will prove that you have become an expert in rights and gender law at an international level. The study may even come to have a direct bearing on your future professional life - previous LLM students at Aberystwyth have found the opportunity presented by their dissertation to be an invaluable help in directing the path of a successful career. Staff from the Aberystwyth Law School will be on hand to advise, encourage and guide you towards the most suitable topics. Upon graduation, you will be fully equipped with the knowledge and skills to develop a career in the field of human rights and humanitarian law and policy. You will also have honed your general academic skills which will stand you in good stead for entry into any position in the postgraduate jobs market. This course will be particularly attractive to those seeking a career in international, humanitarian and human rights advocacy, business, law and a range of governmental and non-governmental organisations.
