University of Strathclyde
Human Rights Law
This programme offers graduates in law and related disciplines, or those with relevant professional qualifications, the opportunity to develop a detailed understanding of human rights law at UK, European and international levels. The programme is intended to provide invaluable training and insights for those who have either a professional or academic interest in an evolving human rights culture. Students have the opportunity to undertake a field dissertation within a governmental or non-governmental organisation with an international focus. It can be either in the UK, or more likely, overseas. This opportunity is offered on a competitive basis and typically lasts for up to 12 weeks. It's delivered through our partnership with Challenges Worldwide, an organisation with extensive international experience in volunteer work placements. Work completed for the placement will focus on a specific area of law relevant to, or actually form the subject of your dissertation. LLM students on the programme have travelled to countries such as India, Guatemala and Uganda to undertake projects in areas including right to water, law reform, developing sexual harassment policy and freedom of assembly.
Core Modules: International Human Rights Law; European Human Rights Law; Human Rights in Comparative Perspective; Human Rights Protection in the UK; Research Methods; Dissertation. Optional Modules: Transitional Justice & Conflict Transformation; UK & EU Environmental Law; Equality Law. You may, with the consent of course directors, also choose a class from other Law Masters programmes and/or relevant classes from other non-law Masters programmes.
Classes will be assessed by a mixture of written exams, presentations and course work comprising research essays typically of 3,500-4000 words. There will be two-hour weekly seminars for each class. Although coordinated by a tutor these will be student-led and interactive.
