International Human Rights LL.M. at Lund University
The Master’s Programme in International Human Rights Law at Lund University offers three specialisations:
• International Human Rights Law
• Intellectual Property Rights
• International Labour Rights
The programme is directed by the Faculty of Law in cooperation with the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law. During the two-year long programme of study, students acquire in-depth knowledge of International Human Rights Law and, if they so choose, in one of the two additional specialisations Intellectual Property Rights or International Labour Rights.
The specialisation in Intellectual Property Rights, offered in cooperation with the WIPO, World-wide Academy in Geneva, includes insightful theoretical and practical approaches to the complex system of the law on international copyright and the law on industrial property rights within the field of international human rights.
The specialisation in Labour Rights, offered in cooperation with the International Labour Organiation, ILO in Geneva, entails practical and theoretical knowledge about the conditions of workers and employers and the approaches taken by international Labour Rights lawyers and the international organisations, mainly the ILO, to deal with atrocities and violations of human dignity and rights related to work.
