LLM Humanitarian/ Human Rights Law


Nicki
Hello, guys!

I am already a lawyer, and interested in attending an LLM programme in Humanitarian and/or Human Rights Law in Europe in order to work in an NGO. I have already made some research on the internet, but I' d like your opinion, too. Any suggestions would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Nicki,

Do you have an idea where about in Europe you are looking for an LLM program in human rights law - as there are a few? A few Universities in the Netherlands offer LLM programs specialized in Human Rights Law. Why don`t you check out Leiden, Tilburg, Maastricht, Erasmus University in Rotterdam, Utrecht and Groningen?

Hello, Steffen! First of all, thanks for your reply!

Well, I haven't any special preferences about the country. My main interest is to attend a worthy programme with great professors. Okay, it would be really nice if it was relatively cheap, too. :P

As far as it concerns the Dutch programmes, I' ve already checked out Leiden, Tilburg and Maastricht, but I'm not sure about them yet.. Do you have any other suggestions, for example, in Germany, Austria, Brussels, the UK, France, etc?

Hello! Thanks for the reply!

Master programmes in the UK are really interesting. I think that the one at the University of Essex is the best to choose - I really liked it! But unfortunately, it is too expensive for me. And I don't think that I would be able to be granted a scholarship.

What about the one in Nottingham and Oxford Brookes? Do they have a good reputation in the field?

Hi Nicki,
Nottingham ranks in position 7 on the University guide 2015: league table for law whilst Oxford Brookes ranks in the 40th position.
Oxford Brookes offers a LLM in International Human Rights Law LLM (Master of Laws)/ PGDip. They charge Home / EU full-time students: £6,520. Home / EU part-time on-campus fee is £3,330 for the first year and thereafter fees increase by 2% yearly. Internationals full-time on-campus fee is £13,100.
The LLM Human Rights and Justice at Nottingham is based on the significant expertise of academic staff in Nottingham Law School (Centre for Conflict, Rights and Justice). Home/ EU students pay £5,510 for the LLM in human rights and Internationals £12,300 so it is slightly cheaper.
The choice is yours.
