Program Overview

International law is an increasingly important field of study and practice. The regulation of financial markets, environmental protection, the management of migrations, or the prosecution of war criminals are all areas in which international law plays a central role.

On the LLM in International Law and Human Rights, you’ll learn how human rights standards are monitored across the globe, used as a condition of participation in international trade and cooperation, and the receipt of financial aid, with violations prosecuted by international courts and tribunals.

You’ll be introduced to the numerous declarations and treaties which proclaim and codify human rights – protecting the welfare of individuals, communities and nations, their political, social and economic development – and encouraged to think critically about the limits, ambiguities and contradictions of human rights norms, institutions, and practices.

Keele School of Law is an internationally recognised centre for cutting-edge, socially relevant legal research, which tackles some of the most pressing challenges facing society today. Key research themes include: Social Justice and Human Rights; International and European Law; Ethics, Health and Social Care; Legal Education, Innovation, and Practice; Gender, Sexuality, and Law.

The wide range of staff expertise enables us to offer four specialist pathways in: Commerce and Business; the Environment; Human Rights; and Politics. This also considerably broadens the scope for potential interdisciplinary research topics; a fascinating range of dissertation topics chosen by past students covers areas as diverse as the law of the sea to the principles of state extradition.

You can also choose from a wide range of elective modules offered both within the Law School and other faculties, for example, Keele Business School. To complement your studies, you can study a modern language, including key UN languages such as French, Russian and Spanish.
