LLM in Human Rights


LLMPHD
Dear All,
I am interested in pursing an LLM degree in Human rights. I have applied to several schools in UK and so far I have received acceptance from: Leicester, Queen's (Belfast), Reading, Kent, Brunel, and Essex. I don't know, which school to join! I would appreciate it if you can help me in choosing which one is the best in human rights field and also in term of living.

Thank you!

Hello

For a LLM in Human Rights I will definitely recommend you to consider the University of Essex. At Essex they have excellent researchers who specialise in the area of human rights protection! The second university which you might want to consider is the University of Kent, they are really good in that area as well. Excellent reputation and great researchers!

Best wishes,
Mehmed

I was recently accepted to both Queen's Belfast's cross border Human Rights LLM (in partnership with NUI, Galway) and University of Kent, Brussels. Anyone have insight on either of these two programs?

Wgrad, what do you want to do? Why do you want to pursue the human rights degree? This will help tell you which one to do.

If you're looking for an broad understanding of human rights and good professors in a range of issues, I would recommend Essex without hesitation. But perhaps you're looking to work with a specific professor at QMUL, or you like a specific course they're offering?

One of the things I can say about Essex - and I simply don't know about QMUL on this - is that the professors are all very accessible for students. They're willing to meet up with you for coffee to discuss research, they all have external projects that they bring students into. This year, I know students have been involved in drug policy debates, research and advice for the UN Special Rapporteur on Iran, analysis of the human rights impacts of mining laws in an African state for an NGO, and the preparation of a case that was argued by Clara Sandoval and Lorna McGregor before the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. And that's all in addition to the ongoing Human Rights Clinic projects that they run. I think those kind of opportunities make Essex a much more desirable place to spend the year studying human rights.
