Study type Taught

Summary

Taught in the critical tradition of Kent Law School, this programme examines the theory and practice of human rights law, international criminal law, humanitarian law, transitional justice, migration law and other fields in the context of different policy areas and various academic disciplines.

Students may choose modules spanning areas of law, conflict and migration to enhance their understanding of the complexities of human rights in today's world. From the migration crisis, human rights violations in conflict zones, crimes against humanity, war crimes or the work of the international criminal court. Studying this LLM in Brussels, provides excellent opportunities for students to apply their knowledge with conferences, seminars and lectures on the subject of human rights. Students may also find they can take up an internship with a human rights charity.

This LLM is particularly suited to those who currently work in, or hope to work in, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, international law firms and foreign affairs departments.

The programme is delivered at our Brussels School of International Studies (BSIS) in conjunction with our law school.

**Extended programme**

The extended programme allows students the opportunity to study their subject in greater detail, choosing a wider range of modules, and also provides the opportunity to spend one term at the Canterbury campus. The extended programme is ideal for students who require extra credits, or would like to have more time to pursue an internship.
