The University of Essex School of Law, long-established in the area of Human Rights Law, has announced it will begin a new LL.M. program in International Human Right and Humanitarian Law in October 2009. The one-year course puts added focus on humanitarian law and international peacekeeping. It will be taught on the university's Cochester campus.

According to the law school, the program "should appeal to those looking to work with humanitarian organizations in the field, those who have such experience and who want to examine the legal aspects in more detail, members of the military seeking to broaden their understanding of the international law pertaining to peacekeeping and other types of military operation, and members of governments or international organizations responsible for establishing peacekeeping or other humanitarian operations."
