National University of Ireland Galway
LLM in International and Comparative Disability Law and Policy

Interested in studying a unique LLM with excellent career prospects? Then consider the LLM in International and Comparative Disability Law and Policy, one of the first LLMs of its kind in the world. This LLM, now in its fifth year, aims to:
“equip students not just with knowledge and insights but also with the skills and motivation to help transform the lives of the 650 million persons with disabilities in the world.” Professor Gerard Quinn
The introduction of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities has resulted in significant changes in the area of Disability Law and Policy. The LLM in International and Comparative Disability Law and Policy addresses these changes and graduates from this programme will be the first to emerge skilled in this growing area of law and policy.

The programme can be completed full-time (1 year) or part-time (2 years). Full details here

Fully-funded prestigious internship opportunities available
The LLM programme is delighted to announce that they have secured two very prestigious internships exclusively available to students on the programme. The internships are based in Geneva with the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Disability. Students will be invited to apply to complete these prestigious internships and the successful candidates will be funded for the duration of the internships. It is intended to ensure that the internships coincide with the sitting of the UN CRPD committee, thus ensuring that the successful candidates will achieve unique access to the UN system.
