For more than two decades, the Master of Laws in International Human Rights Law has been a cooperative venture of the Faculty of Law at Lund University and the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law. This makes your education unique: no other LLM programme offers the joint resources of a prestigious law school and an implementation-oriented human rights institution. And, we believe, no other LLM programme has become so well-established with employers in the human rights area. We aim to train your contextual awareness, scholarly approach, analytic clarity and practical skills alike. Both the Faculty of Law at Lund University and the RWI are well respected educational actors and our graduates benefit from the fact that the Master´s programme at Lund is held in high esteem worldwide. The programme staff has been carefully selected to ensure the highest scholarly standards in research and training. We regularly add outstanding international experts to the list of guest professors addressing our students: Kofi Annan, Shirin Ebadi, judges at international courts and tribunals, diplomats and human rights intellectuals.
The Master of Laws in International Human Rights Law in Lund was one of the first LLM programmes established specifically to provide for the academic mastery of an increasingly complex area: the international law of human rights. Three paths are offered, one leading to a general command of human rights law in theory and practice (which most students choose) and two specialisations, combining human rights law with either intellectual property law or labour rights. All of the three options will open doors to a broad array of international and domestic careers within the legal sector.
Our alumni find employment with international organisations, NGOs, private law firms and public authorities. The UN system or regional organisations, international or domestic courts, the public or the private sector - you will enjoy a broad choice. Our LLM prepares you thoroughly for the challenges of your future profession and gives you a competitive advantage over holders of other Master s degrees in human rights.
