McGill University & Human Rights Program


Giolia

Hi All,
I'm thinking about an LLM in public international law, human right and humanitaria law.
I am between ADH in Geneva(which, I know is much more recognised in the field) and a faculty in Montreal which can be McGill or U d M.

I know that if I'm interested in human right I will have to apply for a general LLM and after that chose some couse of international law, or may be work in a research with the "human rights center" at McGill.. Does anybody have some info about this center of human rights? Which is his reputation?
But I don't know the job perspectives after an LLM at McGill, with my interest in public international.
I'm sorry for my confusion...

Hi Giolia!

I applied McGill's LLM, and if I get admitted I would undertake the human rights courses aswell.

I also applied to Georgetown and UPenn and I have already been accepted, but I do not know to which of them I will attend.

Have you gotten elsewhere any insight regarding McGill and its Human Rights center?

Initially I was going to apply also to the ADH.. at the I didn't for me to narrow my options.. but I think that it is a great University for the area you like.

Hi vbtz,
I'm sorry, I read your post only now and my response is perharps unuseful.
..But I'm happy to notice that I'm not the one that is interested on that program!
Congratulation for yours successful applications! Georgetown has a good program in International law. Have you already decided which program you will attend?
I will apply to Mcgill next year, and I'm searching to some infos about how and when to apply, if letters of reccomandation are-as people say- the real quid pluris that can make the difference in the admission process; and, last but not least, how much time as riquired to do a decent application.
All that I know about McGill and the human rights program is that they have a specific center on human rights and cultural diversity, as usual in a big law school. I don't know if they have a really specific program, but I've read that they have some very interesting internship. Moreover, I think the LLM at McGill is always a good choice if you are interested in academia...
I have a question to ask you: are you canadian?
I have noticed that canadian students have many facilities that for international students, like me, does not exist (the total amount for and LLM is more ore less 1/3 of the amount that and international student pays)... now I would like to discover if there is a possibility for interetional students to have some exemption/scholarschip. Have you got any information about that-in case you're non canadian, of course-?
Good luck for your choice!
Kindest regards
