The Irish Centre for Human Rights in the Law School at NUI Galway and the School of Law, Queen’s University Belfast, have collaborated in establishing these two Masters programmes. The programmes, the first such in Ireland, involve students attending lectures for the first semester in Belfast and for the second semester in Galway, followed by the summer semester in either location completing a dissertation.
The Cross Border LLM programmes in Human Rights and Criminal Justice are designed to allow students to benefit from research and study in two jurisdictions. By having access to academic staff and research facilities in Belfast and Galway, students are given the possibility to develop and understand a number of perspectives of the study of human rights law.
The Irish Centre for Human Rights, based at NUI Galway, is one of the world’s premier university-based institutions for the study and promotion of human rights, humanitarian law, and international criminal law. Since its establishment in January 2000, the centre has developed a global reputation for excellence in the field of human rights teaching, research, and advocacy.
Applicants must normally hold a degree in a relevant social science (e.g., law, sociology, psychology, etc.) in which they have attained Second Class Honours Grade 1 standard or equivalent. Previous experience in a relevant legal or criminal justice setting may be taken into account.
