International Human Rights Law - Master Programme at The Lund university in Sweden

For more than three decades now, 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 a well-known 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 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 alike, including judges at international courts or tribunals, senior police and military officers, diplomats and scholars, among others. We provide our students with a multitude of perspectives on human rights yet ensuring a red thread of academic progression throughout the programme as well as aiming to strengthen human rights implementation and protection through knowledge. Past guest speakers have included the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Kofi Annan, and the Nobel peace prize laureate Shirin Ebadi.

The Master of Laws in International Human Rights Law in Lund was one of the first LL.M programmes in the world established specifically to provide for the academic mastery of an increasingly complex area: the international law of human rights.

The programme will open doors to a broad array of international and domestic careers within the legal sector. Our alumni find employment with international organizations, NGOs, private law firms and in national governments. The UN system or regional organizations, international or domestic courts, the public or the private sector – you will enjoy a broad choice. Our LL.M prepares you thoroughly for the challenges of your future profession and gives you a competitive advantage in the labour market.
