LL.M. in International Human Rights and Humanitarian Law

During the last 15 years of coordinating the Program of Advanced Studies of the Academy on Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, we have been able to identify an urgent need for further formal training of a significant number of legal professionals, especially abroad, with specific interest in human rights.

The LL.M. in International Human Rights and Humanitarian Law unmistakably addresses the need for specialized training in international human rights law in the United States and around the world today. The creation of the LL.M. in International Human Rights and Humanitarian Law as a hybrid master’s program, with both on-site (residential) and online components allows for a high quality curriculum with a flexible and convenient format. Additionally, students will interact with over 40 world renowned experts, including human rights and humanitarian law experts coming from academia, international tribunals, civil society organizations, and international organizations.

How to Apply

Currently, this program is the only one in the United States to offer a hybrid curriculum of its kind in a U.S. law school. This unique program, with online and residential course components, will provide you with superb training and outstanding opportunities in international human rights and humanitarian law.
