University of Aberdeen: Criminal Justice and Human Rights LLM
|Institution||University of Aberdeen|
|Department||School of Law|
Criminal Justice and Human Rights at Aberdeen combines the key specialist topics of criminal justice with some of today’s most powerful human rights issues.
One of the biggest changes in recent times has been the increasing global demand for criminal justice systems to comply with human rights. Whether studying international conventions to confront human trafficking or legal frameworks to investigate war crimes, this programme will help you explore both Criminal Justice and Human Rights in depth and breadth. You will have the opportunity to study subjects such as Criminological Theories, Criminal Evidence and Proof and The Use of Force in International Law.
This programme was designed in collaboration with criminal justice and human rights experts as well as our internal staff at the University. With this combined input, you will gain unique insights into both subjects from an international perspective, which will advance your understanding of the factors that influence them. The programme has been carefully coordinated to align with the competencies required for today’s international job market.
