IHRL L.L.M. Choices


BrunaG

Hello, everyone! I need some advice concerning my masters and figured this forum could help me a lot. I have recently been admitted to the L.L.M. in human rights programs of LSE, Leiden (Advanced), and the Graduate Institute Geneva (IHEID), and have absolutely no idea which offer I should accept.

Is there anyone who is studying or has graduated from one of these schools and could enlighten me on their respective advantages and disadvantages? i.e. reputation for PhD, quality of education, employment opportunities

I have just obtained my LLB degree and still haven't decided if I want to work in practice or academia, but for sure want to dedicate my career to working with minorities.

Thank you!

I too am confused between Leiden and the Graduate Institute Geneva (IHEID). A friend of mine, who studied at Leiden suggested that the Graduate Institute is a better option.

Hi Sawnhey7! My name is Uditi and I am a current student the Advanced LL.M program in European and Human Rights Law at Leiden University. I think the program at Leiden is an amazing and quite an intensive program. 

I have a interdisciplinary background with a specialisation in Political Science and International Law. Hence, I chose this programme because I want to work in the field of Peace and Security. By being in this programme has really opened me up to new possibilities. I got to participate in a Report writing for the Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression. Furthermore, the courses are super interesting. Each course is designed to ensure that you critically think about each human rights related issue from a legal  and  even political perspective. Moreover, the programme allows you to build close relationships with your classmates and professors who do not hesitate to give you guidance on matters. Additionally, the location is very important since Leiden is very close to the Hague where all the international NGOs and the International Courts are sitting. This will give you an opportunity to apply for internships there as well. 
I hope this helps. If you have more questions please feel free to reach out.
