Human rights llm


Hi

I am an llb graduate from India. i have worked as a judicial clerk/research assistant with the Supreme Court of India and now i have been volunteering with a human rights organisation for past three months.

I am interested in doing LLM in human rights and will be applying to Essex and LSE for the same. Could some one suggest me some other good universities? And by when will the applications open?

Also i have no publications but i have worked on some reports for w.r.t. right to food, and domestic violence. how bad is it not to have any published papers? my overall percentage was 71.4 in LLB.

Please help!!!

Hi,

as regards the choice between LSE and Essex, there have been two lengthy discussions on this particular issue. Just have a look:

Another university which has a good reputation concerning human rights law is the University of Nottingham. However, I cannot say whether the aforementioned programmes are better, so you might want to ask someone who has specialised in human rights law.

As I am from a civil law jurisdiction, I cannot say whether your LL.B. score is sufficient. However, it is generally not decisive to have pubilshed any papers to be admitted to LL.M. programmes.

Kind regards and good luck with your choice!
