About

For a quarter of a century, 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 LL.M programme offers the joint resources of a prestigious law school and an implementation-oriented human rights institution. And, we believe, no other LL.M 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 also regularly host distinguished guest professors and visiting speakers from practice and academia, including judges at international courts or tribunals, diplomats and scholars. Past guest speakers have included the then Secretary-General of the United Nations, Koffi Annan, and the Nobel peace prize laureate Shirin Ebadi.

Career prospects

The programme 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.
