LLM Specialization in International Human Rights

The Law School offers a broad range of courses relating to international human rights law, reflecting our faculty’s in-depth human rights expertise. This specialization provides LLM students with a thorough understanding of the relevant international, regional, and domestic human rights norms. In addition to the required course on International Human Rights Law, students may choose from courses on areas related to international criminal law, disability law, gender and the law, indigenous rights, international environmental law and employment discrimination.

If they wish, students may choose an Asian focus for their human rights specialization, and with approval may also write an International Human Rights Paper as part of their certificate program. A new Human Rights Clinic has now been introduced and LLM students are encouraged to participate in it.

Many of our faculty members teach and write on topics related to human rights, and are active participants in human rights activities throughout the world. For selection of courses, see:
