NUI Galway Launches LL.M. in International Migration and Refugee Law and Policy

Human rights-oriented program to begin this September

Ireland's NUI Galway has announced the launch of a new LL.M. in International Migration and Refugee Law and Policy.

The new program—unique in Ireland, according to the school—will not only look at international migration but related issues as well, such as humanitarian law, gender and law, human rights law, advocacy, and more. It will be open to those who want to break into the fields of human rights and asylum law as well as those who already work in these fields.

The LL.M in International Migration and Refugee Law and Policy will include two core modules, one in International Migration Law and the other in International Refugee Law. Beyond those modules, students can customize their learning through optional courses such as European Human Rights Law, Public International Law, Minority Rights, and more. The LL.M. will also include a dissertation.

The full-time version of the LL.M. will take one year to complete. The program is also offered in a part-time format. 

The program is offered through NUI Galway's Irish Centre for Human Rights, which focuses on human rights research, advocacy and teaching.

For more information, please see NUI Galway's LL.M. in International Migration and Refugee Law and Policy program webpage.
