American WCL to Launch a Spanish LL.M. Program in International Human Rights and Humanitarian Law

Program set to launch in spring 2016

American University Washington College of Law has announced that in 2016 it will launch a Spanish-language version of its LL.M. program in International Human Rights and Humanitarian Law.

"Training lawyers and human rights activists with a multilingual approach is a much-needed undertaking to ensure that human rights victims and governments are represented, at the domestic and international level, by members of their communities who have received specialized training,” according to professor Robert Goldman, who is the academic director of the new LL.M.   

The program, like its English-language counterpart, will be delivered through a hybrid format, with some classes delivered online and some delivered through residential in-class sessions. The program is flexible, and generally can be completed in between 18 and 24 months.

The new LL.M. en Derechos Humanos y Derecho Humanitario is set to launch in the spring of 2016. The deadline to apply for the new program is December 1st, 2015.

For more information, please see the news release announcing the launch of the new LL.M., or see WCL's full profile on LLM GUIDE.
