The programme is to provide a range of local, national, international and global themes for study in a critical legal perspective; it provides considerable freedom to individual students to devise their own programme by choosing from the varied options available; students, thus, have the opportunity to link previous or current experience to academic inquiry; it engender excellent research and writing skills based on stronger foundations and better understanding of the role of law in a contemporary context; the objective of the programme is to promote better understanding of law related frameworks in areas such as human rights, international law, development, refugees, minority rights and Islam.
