Details Details

The LLM (International Justice) provides students with critical insights into the international legal system and how it operates to promote and secure justice.  It analyses how the international legal order works and how it seeks to address social inequalities and protect vulnerable, marginalised and oppressed groups. The programme draws on law and other disciplines, including sociology, anthropology and political science, to provide students with a comprehensive examination of the challenges facing international justice mechanisms today.

Work placement opportunities are available as part the programme with partner civil society organisations including the Irish Council for Civil Liberties, Transparency International, the Irish Penal Reform Trust, Trócaire and Oxfam.

Teaching is delivered by means of small class lectures, in-class simulations and workshops. Students will also benefit from guest lectures delivered by international speakers.The programme is very attractive to law graduates who wish to specialise in the fields of international law and human rights, and to non-law graduates who are interested in questions of social justice and in acquiring legal tools and skills for future career options.

The LLM in International Justice is an excellent programme for anyone with an interest in the areas of justice and human
rights. The modules are engaging and extremely interesting, and are delivered in small classroom settings by lecturers
who are genuinely interested in their students. Although the LLM has a strong legal component, is it extremely
accessible to non-law graduates, of which I am one. I would highly recommend the programme, and indeed Maynooth
University, to anyone with an interest in this area of study.''
