Master of Laws
The LLM in Human Rights Law programme is designed to enable you to form an advanced conceptual understanding of international law relating to the promotion and protection of human rights at the international, regional and domestic levels.
Your fellow students will come from the UK and more than 80 other countries, each able to draw on prior academic and in many cases professional experiences from different jurisdictions to enrich discussion and debate in class.
Human Rights Collegium
The Human Rights Collegium at Queen Mary is the first association between a university and a non-governmental organisation established to provide scholarly expertise, research and teaching on national and international human rights. The Human Rights Collegium is based at Queen Mary, University of London and is a consortium of members of the School of Law and the British Institute of Human Rights. The collegium's aim is to focus on areas that are at the forefront of human rights to help contribute to its progressive development and to benefit the community. These rights include socio-economic rights; rights of women; international child rights and the rights of other vulnerable groups.
Queen Mary LLM students have the opportunity to apply for three summer internships with the British Institute of Human Rights (BIHR).
