There has always been a need for well trained lawyers in Criminal Law internationally and at Aberdeen you gain understanding of the various jurisdictions and their criminal justice systems to enable you to work internationally within the discipline. You study detailed criminal evidence and proof, issues in criminal justice, theories and law with highly respected professionals such as Professor Pete Duff who has worked at the Criminological Research Centre at Oxford and City University Hong Kong and University of the South Pacific. The programme gives you the skills and knowledge to practice back in your home country within the law. Some alumni have gone on to work at the United Nations or within human rights fields globally.
The LLM in Criminal Justice and Human Rights reflects established areas of research strength in the School of Law, and offers options which are both of international relevance and which meet the demand for studying contemporary issues in UK criminal justice and human rights at an advanced level. You study Critical Legal Thinking and Scholarship and two optional courses each in Semester 1 and 2.
Graduates from Aberdeen have worked directly in the law profession in their home countries, others have been funded by the UN and have worked globally in the area of human rights.
