There are some good programs in the Netherlands such as Leiden University (LL.M. Public International Law), Utrecht University, University of Groningen, Maastricht University. University of Lund (Sweden), University of Oslo and University of Malta also offer a Human Rights LL.M. I am not sure if the one in Malta is actually an LL.M. It is called "Mediterranean Master of Arts in Human Rights and Democratization" and looks really intersting for lawyers planning to practice Human Rights Law in the Mediterranean area.

Hi,

You should check out the program at Lunds University, Sweden â The Raoul Wallenberg institute http://www.rwi.lu.se/index.shtml . One of the advantages of taking a LLM in Sweden is that you donât have to pay any tuition â education is funded by the government.

Hey Md.Abu Boker, I think you got things a litlle wrong here: If you want to apply to a university you should contact them directly, in this forum you will only meet other students, also, I am not sure you want your personal details to be shared with the whole world ;-)

Hi Ricarda,
I think University of Lund has a very good program in Human Rights, to which I have also applied for their Human Rights and Intellectual Property LLM. I hope this information will be of help to you.

Hey,
I got accepted into the Utrecht LLM international and european protection of human rights. This is great, but brutally expensive (9000) for a dutch program. I cannot aply for any scholarship sincde I am actaully a dutch student, and then you just cant apply. Anyway. How well appreciated is the degree of this masters, how did other students get the money together, and does anyone know stories of people that did the degree, concerning the level and career perspectives afterwards?
Cheers,

I would in anyway prefer to apply for the MA in human rights and conflict studies in Utrecht, except for it's MA and not a LL.M. Thats a choice I guess! The MA is a regular programme.

The University of Groningen is starting a LL.M in international Human Rights this year I guess, but if you want to be sure send an email to the faculty. Groningen had been awarded the best Law faculty of the Netherlands, if that means anything.

Does anyone know anything about the programme at Oslo's university?

It's actually not an LLM but a Master of Studies (MSt), see http://www.llm-guide.com/university/118 or http://www.conted.ox.ac.uk/courses/international/mastersdegreeininternationalhumanrightslaw.asp

"Q: What is a Master of Studies degree and how does it differ from an LLM?

A: In Oxford the primary one-year post-graduate degree in the humanities and social sciences, including law, is the Masters of Studies (MSt). The University of Oxford offers no LLM degree in any field of law. This course is an MSt because it is taken part-time over two years and thus is equivalent to one year of full-time study. Oxford offers a Master of Studies (MSt) rather than an LLM degree for historical reasons unrelated to the content or sophistication of the course of study. Is the MSt equivalent to an LLM? Yes. In both cases students normally are expected to have a first degree in Law. In both cases the level of instruction and subject offerings are similar."
