International events almost always have a human rights dimension, whether it be the war in Darfur or trade talks in Doha. The LLM in International Human Rights Law offers you the opportunity to gain a critical understanding of the operation of the international and regional human rights systems and the practical application of human rights norms in a range of contexts. A sound understanding of human rights issues is increasingly important not only for law professionals, but also for those pursuing careers in government, business or NGOs. The LLM in International Human Rights Law is one of a suite of LLM programmes offered by the Law Department at Oxford Brookes University and provides you with the opportunity to join students from around the world to develop your expertise in this important area of international law. Research is fundamental to our range of LLM programmes, and here at Oxford Brookes University we encourage our students to become involved. Oxford attracts high calibre researchers and academics from all over the world as well as those closer to home, so you will have the opportunity to regularly attend seminars and lectures given by visiting speakers who are recognised world experts in the field of law. The university library has an impressive range of legal holdings covering UK, European and international material, and a dedicated law librarian. You will also have access to the University of Oxford's Bodleian Law Library.
