Hi everyone, I would really appreciate the advice of people on this site about what kind of LLM I should look into. I am a lawyer from Canada experienced in labour and employment law looking to work in the area of international labour law (International Labour Organization, Committee on Freedom of Association, NGOs). I see that there is a relevant LLM at Tilburg University in the Netherlands. I don't know if I really want to go study there as it seems to be a very boring city (I've lived in Ottawa before and I've had enough of boring cities) but I'm not completely closed to it. There use to be a similar LLM at Leiden but it seems like it was discontinued. Would any of you know of another good LLM option to work in international labour law for ngos and international organizations. Would an LLM in human rights be a good choice ?
International Labour Law
Hi! Prior changing the practice, I did a research about European LLMs in labour law (now I am moving to compliance and anticorruption). As a result, the best LLM I found was:
- University of Bristol: LLM in Labour Law and Corporate Governance
- Universitá di Roma - Sapienza: Master in Diritto del lavoro e della previdenza sociale (classes in Italian)
- Universitá di Bologna: Master in Diritto del lavoro (classes in English or Italian)
- ITCILO (International Training Centre - International Labour Organization): Master in Industrial and Employment Relations (2/3 online and 1/3 in-person at Turin)
I talked to a lawyer who studied in Bristol. She said the labour law modules were excellent and the city was amazing, green and busy for students. Further, the living costs are lower than London.
Italy has a huge weight on labour law, so Rome might be a good option if you speak Italian. Although online, ILO is a part of UN, hence, its master is another good option to step in international law.
Nonetheless, there are a lot of modules on labour law. You could look for general LLM and choose the best modules. For instance, UCL used to offer the modules of Human Right at Work, and European Labour Rights in an International Context.
