International Development Law and Human Rights LLM/PGDip


Course Description

Mode of study

LLM - full time 1 year, part time 2 years
PGDip - 7 months

Course details

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 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.

3281.png One of the reasons I chose to come to Warwick to study International Development Law and Human Rights was the content of the courses offered here. I always knew I wanted to study Human Rights, and looking at the descriptions of the wide variety of courses offered, I was sure I was going to get a lot out of the programme, and I was right. Coming here only enhanced my critical thinking skills and taught me a lot more than just the practical aspects of human rights law. Warwick has definitely been one of the most academically stimulating environments I have ever been in, and my teachers and peers have inspired me immeasurably.

As well as being an extremely prestigious institution, Warwick is also a very accommodating and friendly place for students. I was able to get involved in several activities, and the Law School staff were always extremely approachable and helpful at every step during the pursuit of my degree, since my application process began. This has made my student experience here that much better, and I will always remember my time here very fondly. For this reason, I am delighted and grateful to have had the opportunity to do my Masters’ here.
