Sussex Law School has announced that it will be launching three new specialist LL.M. Degrees in 2015.
The new LL.M. programs will focus on environmental law, information technology and intellectual property law, and human rights law. Here's a run-down of the new programs:
The LL.M. in Environmental Law will help prepare students for the challenges lawyers face in regulating environmentally harmful behavior and working to achieve global sustainability. Core courses cover topics in environmental governance, environmental law, and sustainability. Optional curriculum will focus on topics such as global environmental law, climate change, and biodiversity.
The LL.M. in Information Technology and Intellectual Property Law will explore important issues in the space, including cyberlaw and governance of the internet. Students will have "the opportunity to experience the work of digital law firms in London through activities of the Society for Computers and Law, and to experience the formation of legislation in European institutions and United Nations bodies," according to the program webpage.
And the new LL.M. in International Human Rights Law will address the international and regional systems of human rights protection, and allow students to explore topics in hate crime and sexual violence, culture and identity rights, and corruption, among others.
Sussex also offers specialist LL.M. programs in a range of topics, including International Criminal Law, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice, and International Financial Law, among others.
