Advanced master on human rights law started off
The advanced LLM European and International Human Rights Law started off today. A select group of students from different parts of the world attended the very first seminar meeting of this new master launched by Leiden Law School.
The students come from countries as diverse as Korea, Thailand, Pakistan, Georgia and Cyprus, in addition to several other countries. This will make for an interesting mix of cultural and legal backgrounds to enrich reflections on the human rights issues to be studied in the programme. The advanced LLM in European and International Human Rights Law is unique by taking a comparative perspective to regional and global human rights systems and by the way in which the ‘law in the books’ is time and again related to the ‘law in action’. The programme will thus provide students with the skills and flexibility to work in different human rights settings at the national and international level and in different political, social and cultural environments.
