Criminal Justice and Human Rights LLM (January or September Start)

Course Description

Your programme of study

It has been a huge challenge to get criminal justice systems to comply with human rights in many parts of law but particularly in applying criminal justice globally. In studying the programme at University of Aberdeen you gain real understanding about the close relationship between the two disciplines and how they inter relate. This will really help you within the legal profession when you practise law and provide advice in this area. You study in an international environment with over 40 different nationalities studying postgraduate law at Aberdeen. This gives you a much wider insight into experience of people from other countries and you are taught by academics with considerable experience in practising the law and a school which is ranked in the top 10 in the UK (The Complete University Guide 2018).

The LLM in Criminal Justice reflects established areas of research strength in the School of Law, and offers options which are both of international and/or comparative relevance and which meet the demand for studying contemporary issues in comparative criminal justice at an advanced level.
