About LLM in International Development Law and Human Rights, LLM - at School of Law, University of Warwick

This course enables you to consider the relationship between development, human rights and global justice. It adopts an inter-disciplinary approach which critically examines the impacts of globalisation in its political, economic, social and security aspects as it impinges on citizenship (and migration), gender, employment, economic and environmental regulation.

You will develop skills in social and legal policy analyses, state governance reform, human rights law, reflexive public advocacy or cause lawyering, and working with people’s movements. You’ll use a combination of theoretical analysis and practical application in the area of contemporary global legal development, and will develop your knowledge of key areas of international development law and human rights law. 

Teaching 

You will be taught by academics who are recognised subject experts with UK and international experience. As well as teaching, most are involved in producing leading research, often providing expert advice to outside bodies.

How the course will be taught will depend on the modules you opt to take, but you can expect a mixture of lectures, seminars and group work.

You will take a selection of modules totalling 120 CATS followed by a 10,000 word dissertation worth 60 CATS. All our modules are worth 20 CATS and run for one term. Modules will be taken during terms one and two, leaving you term three and the summer to complete your dissertation.  If you choose to study part-time, this will be split over two years of study.

Assessment

The course incorporates a wide and varying range of assessment methods, which may include essays, examinations, portfolios, presentations and the dissertation.

We regard feedback as a vital part of the assessment process. We seek to help you reach your full potential by identifying the strengths and weaknesses of your work and the actions needed to develop your understanding. You will be given feedback after your assessments each term.
