Master of Laws in Advanced Studies in European and International Human Rights Law, Universiteit Leiden (The Netherlands)
Academic Year 2014-2015

In the contemporary world the coexistence and interaction of legal regimes has become a characteristic feature. The same holds true for the human rights systems that have developed nationally, regionally and globally.

In many cases where human rights are at risk, different human rights protection mechanisms may be applicable or overlap. In addition, human rights supervisory bodies seem increasingly inclined to take each other’s work into account, aiming to enhance the building of an all-embracing and cohesive human rights culture. The Advanced Master’s in ‘European and International Human Rights Law’ at Universiteit Leiden gives the coexistence and interaction of multiple human rights mechanisms pride of place by studying them in a comparative perspective.

This Master of Laws Advanced Studies programme is a focused and demanding postgraduate degree programme. It is directed at law graduates and other graduates with a sufficient background in law who are eager to pursue advanced studies in order to specialise in international and European human rights law.

Exploring new connections
The LLM in International Human Rights and Criminal Justice gives you in-depth understanding of a field of law that is often extremely complex. Taking the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms as your starting point, you analyse the connections between human rights and criminal justice and explore laws on a worldwide scale, as well as honing important practical skills such as conducting research, preparing legal memoranda, and practising litigation. By studying under legal experts who draw on the latest research to guide their lectures, and by working alongside practising professionals, you are trained over the course of a year to understand how and why human rights legislation is important – and what you can do to enforce it.
