Master Degree in Law of Human rights


Ulyssesmf

Hi,
I've applied for Lund's LLM in human rights and intellectual property rights this year and I was nominatted for a scholarship. However, I was not awarded and I didn't have enough money to support myself for a year in Sweden (I'm form Brazil - not an european citizen), I had to let it go. I had no idea of aforum like this. Can anyone tell me how is it to live in Lund? Is it an expensive town? Are there job opportunities?

Does any one knows about other universities who have LLMprograms in the human rights field which are free like Lund's?

Cheers from Brazil,
Ulysses.

I think thomascrown - http://www.llm-guide.com/board/2868 - should be able to answer your question about Lund. He is a student there.

The programme at the University of Geneva isn't in human rights law per se, nor is it an LL.M. programme exactly. First, it offers a degree in humanitarian law (the law of armed conflict), not human rights law. Secondly, it no longer offers an LL.M., but a 'Master in Advanced Studies', which is regarded as the equivelant of an LL.M.

As far as its reputation: for those interested in humanitarian law in particular, it provides excellent instruction and career opportunities. Because of its proximity to the ICRC (also located in Geneva), many of the world's foremost scholars in this field research there. It is also affiliated offically with the ICRC, which provides students with opportunities not available at locations more distant from Geneva.

Hi,

I'm finishing up my J.D. from a US university in June. Currently, I am participating in an internship in Geneva in an international non-profit. I would love to stay and work in Geneva in the field of international law and am wondering if anyone has any suggestions about whether it is preferable to attend say the University of Geneva and get a Master in Advanced Studies degree (I am interested in the intersection of human rights and environmental conservation.) or to just jump in and move here when I'm done with school and look for a job directly out of university? Thank you for any advice you can provide.

I would check the programme at the University of Aberdeen as well:
They teach various human rights systems but also exploring global human rights issues as well as the responses thereto afforded at an international, regional or domestic level. They have courses on offer such as International Human Rights Law, Regional Human Rights Systems, Human Rights, War and Terrorism, Peoples, Indigenous Peoples and Minorities in International Law, Issues in North American Human Rights Law, Legal Issues in Equal Treatment and Free Movement in EC Law.
(see http://www.abdn.ac.uk/law/graduate/index.shtml)

Hi, I'm a currently studying Social Anthropology and Public Law. I will finish up receiving a bachelor in both subjects. I would like to continue studying International Law with specialization on Human Rights in a Master's programme. But I don't know if my degree (just in public law) is enough for admission. Does anybody know of a good reputated university programme for Human Rights/International Law that doesn't ask for a bachelor in law?

I am planning to apply at the University of Lund (Masters Programme in Intellectual Property Law and Human Rights Law), although I found out from its website that they only accept around 15 students for the program. Does anybody know anyone who has qualified and taken the program? What qualifications are necessary to ensure acceptance? Thanks..

hi,
im a sri Lankan who just completed my LLB in july 2005. i am currently working at the UNDP in sri lanka. I am iterested in doing a masters programme in international human rights, International criminal law and humanitarian law.... I checked out the UCHL programme and having heard that it is not an LLM per se, lost my enthusiasm to apply there....
Could someone help me out with some suggestions for good universities for those subjects...? i am also hoping to apply for financial aid so if anyone has an idea of any particular scholarships awarded by the universities please let me know... I have also checked out the University of London external LLM. The programme did not offer the exact subjects i am keen on. Are there any other good universities in Geneva that offer LLM programmes in the subjects that i mentioned... ?

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 everybody ;

I also applied for the same programme. Do you have further information about admission? I mean whether they are very selective or not?

thank you

Hi,

I've also applied for the master in human rights and intellectual property rights in Lund. I'm really looking forward for the results and hoping to get accepted. I would appreciate ANY information about the program, the university or the city. It seems the last message had the most interesting part censored. If someone want to discuss it via email, mine is ulyssesmf@hotmail.com

A hug,
Ulysses.

Hi,

I finished my LL.M studies at Lund university in 2005. I can tell you that it is a very charming medieval city, small but with a tremendous supply for international students. With Malmö and Copenhagen within close proximity (20 and 50 minutes by train) it's an ideal place to study. The ordinary LL.M program (for Swedish students) is the hardest and most prestigous in Sweden.

Hi! I also applied to LLM in Human Rights and Intellectual Property Rights in Lund. Problem is that the results will be only in June. It's a bit too long to wait and i'm not sure they will choose me, they accept just 15 students. I already received answers from UK universities and Leiden University in the Netherlands. I'm not sure if it's wise to wait.what do you think?
The programme in Lund seems to be very good and known around the world. I've been to Lund last year, it's really nice cosy city. I

I don't know why only the message i was trying to answer appeared on the site. Well, I was trying to say that if I was chosen to a LLM program besides Lund that I could afford, I wouldn't wait for Lund's results, since it's very selective (just 15 people). However, Lund's programme seems just wonderful to me. I really hope to be accepted.

Hi! The Lund Master's degree in International Human Rights Law sounds fantastic, and I'd love to apply for it (as well as the scholarship, which I'm going to need!). I will be finishing my LLB in December this year - does anyone know whether there's much chance of getting into Lund without work experience?

Hi Carol,
I applied to Lund too and still haven't heard from them. I know 2 people that did the HRs LLM at Lund last year, 1 of them recieved a letter at the end of April and the other in the middle of May. Don't start worrying yet. Remember that they will have had some time off for Easter.
It is on the otherhand a good idea to have a backup university as Lund is very competative.
Good luck!!!

Thank you very much for the attention, I really appreciated that. Maybe we'll be classmates soon (I hope so). If you have any further information, would you please, be in touch?! Good luck for you too!
