Study type Taught


International Development Law and Human Rights LLM adopts an interdisciplinary approach to examine the relationship between development, human rights and global justice. Warwick's School of Law, ranked 23rd in the UK, encourages you to think critically and creative practice with a particular focus on the global South.

This course enables you to consider the relationship between development, human rights and global justice. It adopts an interdisciplinary approach which critically examines the place of law within its wider political, social, economic and global contexts and its engagement with citizenship (and migration), gender, employment, economics and environmental regulation. You will develop skills in social and legal policy analyses, state governance reform, human rights and public international law, reflexive public advocacy or cause lawyering, and working with people’s movements. You’ll use a combination of theoretical analysis and practical application in the area of contemporary global legal development, and will develop your knowledge of key areas of international development law and human rights.
