Course announcement: International Human Rights module on LSE Executive LLM

The Executive LLM programme from the LSE Law Department is designed to bring postgraduate legal education to busy professionals. Students on the programme will study for the LLM by taking a set of intensive modules over a period of three to four years. Students can choose from a range of modules in fields including human rights, international law, media law and public law.

Dr Margot Salomon, Associate Professor in the Law Department and Centre for the Study of Human Rights, teaches the International Human Rights: Concepts, Law and Practice module, which is concerned with the international protection of human rights and its relation to a range of current global problems. 

The module draws on the international law and practice of human rights to examine how we might best understand the contribution and limitations of human rights to addressing contemporary ills. Through the consideration of a range of standards and thematic issues, participants will learn about, and critically analyse, human rights concepts, norms, institutions and actors.
