Immigration & Refugee/Asylum Law


Sean78
Hello All - I am looking at pursuing grad programs to study immigration and refugee law - particularly immigration issues in the EU.

I've searched this website and university pages and come up with these faculty members with interests in this area:

UCL (UK)- prof OKeefe
Kent (UK)- prof Ryan
Cork (Ire)- prof Mullally
Leiden (Ndl)- Immigration Law Research Centre

Does anyone know any of these faculty members/programs? Can anyone comment on them?

Does anyone know any other faculty with interests in immigration & refugee law? or other programs I have missed and should consider?

I completed my LLB in Canada and am unfamiliar with the programs in UK/Ireland. I'm doing my best to navigate the web, but would greatly appreciate any personal experience anyone may have. Many thanks in advance for any replies!

I did my LLM at UCL and took the course "European Internal Market", which was taught by O'Keefe. He is a good and entertaining Irish lecturer and is very well renowned throughout Europe. I can fully recommend his courses.

Hi Somyrao !

Still interested in an LLM on migration law?
If yes, I am in the same boat. They do exist several research institutes, indicatively :
www.ini.smo.uhi.ac.uk/ researchinstitutes/research-euro.htm
www.uu.nl/uupublish/onderzoek/ onderzoekcentra/ercomer/24638main.html
http://www.ru.nl/law/cmr/research/program/
www.imis.uni-osnabrueck.de/e_index.htm
www.migrationpolicy.org/research/europe.php
However, at least in continental Europe, I didn t discover an LLM that specialised. The common path is an LLM in EU LAW.
If you have any insights, would be grateful to receive them.

Hi,

I've just completed an LLM in EU law at Kent and thoroughly recommend it. Although it's not possible to study immigration law as such, there are electives in free movement of persons and also international migration law. If you add another module on human rights and also choose your dissertation in a migration related subject, two thirds of the LLM would be devoted to immigration issues.

Dr Ryan is an extremely thoughtful and cerebral tutor who is passionate about migration law and so I know that he would be an excellent dissertation supervisor.
