Human Rights Law

It’s no wonder that an increasing number of students are aiming to pursue an LL.M. in Human Rights Law: With so much happening in the world today, from wars and forced exile to environmental disasters, it’s essential to understand the overlapping legal frameworks and laws that affect human rights of people everywhere.

Today’s best LL.M.s in Human Rights Law instill critical insights into these topics by leveraging current research from human rights centers and hubs. Some law schools also provide the opportunity for students to pursue internships, either during or after their LL.M., with an international organization or human rights-related nongovernmental organization (NGO). Through these internships, students can get hands-on experience in humanitarian law and human rights law.

Proximity to these kinds of NGOs and international organizations allows for networking and connecting with important decisionmakers. This is why some of the world’s best LL.M. programs in Human Rights Law are located in important hubs like Geneva—home to groups like the Human Rights Council—and New York City, home to the United Nations headquarters

LL.M.s in Human Rights typically cover a variety of topics, and the best programs delve deep into concepts like international law, humanitarian law, international criminal law, refugee law, and other related topics. Some law schools also offer related masters programs, in subjects like humanitarian law and asylum law, while other schools offer programs that specifically address human rights in a region, such as Europe.

After completing a Human Rights LL.M., many graduates go on to work in international law firms dealing with human rights issues, as well as NGOs and other organizations.

Human Rights

An LL.M. in Human Rights Law often appeals to students who want to make a difference in the world. These LL.M. programs are ideal for those who want to understand human rights laws, which, by their very nature are complicated: there are many intersecting layers of regulations, as well as a patchwork of shifting international and national laws that govern the protection of individuals. And so, a great benefit of an LL.M. Human Rights Law is that it exposes students to the most up-to-date thinking in the field.

Beyond addressing up-to-date laws and regulations, a Human Rights LL.M. might cover a number of topics, including, for instance, criminal law, refugee law, migration law, and more. Some programs might also provide the opportunity for students to do internships with an international organization or nongovernmental organization (NGO), which would allow them to get direct experience in the field. Some LL.M. degrees in this field cover the international nature of the connected rules and regulations around human rights, while others may focus on specific areas, such as Europe.

Some law schools might also offer degrees in related fields, such as master's programs in humanitarian law, asylum and refugee law, children's rights, and indigenous law.

For graduates of LL.M.s in Human Rights Law degrees, many career opportunities are out there. Some go onto work in international law firms that specialize in human rights, and others end up in international organizations like the United Nations, or the World Bank. Still other graduates of Human Rights LL.M. programs find careers in NGOs like Human Rights Watch or Amnesty International.
