International Development Law and Human Rights LLM

Our LLM in International Development Law and Human Rights considers the relationship between development, human rights and global justice.

Studying on the LLM in International Development Law & Human Rights

The programme is designed to provide a fuller understanding of development, governance, and a wide range of justice issues, and will entail recourse to political, social, gender and moral theory. On this course you’ll examine the theories and practices of development, social justice and human rights within and across nations. Among the themes explored are the implications of globalisation and its governance regimes, the feminisation of impoverishment, humanitarian and displacement issues, development and human rights, and the implications of environmental degradation.

You’ll develop knowledge, theory and practical skills across the field of international development and human rights law, with the option to specialise further in particular areas. We benefit from close associations with the Centre for Human Rights in Practice, providing you with opportunities to undertake research, capacity-building and other project work aimed at the global promotion of human rights.


Our modules are organised into clusters, illustratively listed below:

• Comparative Human Rights

• Gender

• Globalisation

• Governance

• International Justice

You can specialise in one of the clusters or, choose freely from the range of modules available, including modules from the other LLMs, or outside departments, if approved by the Programme Director.


LA951: Theory & Practice of International Development Law & Human Rights

This module provides an overview of the main contemporary issues in international development law and human rights. It provides an introduction to topics that you are expected to have an understanding of and thus provides the background for all modules and the dissertation. Those who read and understand the module materials are more likely to achieve higher grades. Group work is an important part of the module as experience shows that participatory study is a successful pedagogical method.

Careers Prospects

Our graduates have developed careers as lawyers and activists in the areas of social justice and human rights; governmental and NGO policy-making; or as academics in law, politics and related fields.
