Coventry University: International Human Rights Law

Institution Coventry University
Department School of Law
Study type Taught


Suitable for graduates with or without a background in law who are seeking an opportunity to gain and/or build upon their knowledge of international human rights law.

This course aims to provide you with an opportunity to develop recognised expertise in emergent issues within the area of international human rights law. The LLM in International Human Rights Law takes an interdisciplinary approach that will introduce you to both the international and regional protection of human rights. This aims to provide you with an understanding of the social realities that inform the human rights discourse and affect the practical applicability of human rights law. Through the course you will have the chance to gain the necessary skills to critically apprehend the rules, systems, techniques, and practices of human rights.

You will be taught by experts in the field of international human rights, with assessment designed to test both critical understanding of the law, as well as its practical application. In addition to this, you will benefit from over 50 years’ experience of teaching Law, and have the opportunity to participate in the Coventry University Global Leaders programme (subject to application and fees) and our CMI module. Please see the Accreditations and Professional Recognition section for further details on our CMI module. Please note that staff are subject to change.

This course can be offered on a part-time basis, with study over two years. Whilst we would like to give you all the information about our part-time offering here, it is tailored for each course each year depending on the number of part-time applicants. Therefore, the part-time teaching arrangements vary. You can make an enquiry about part-time study using our online forms, for UK and for EU/International students.
