International Children’s Rights (Advanced LL.M.)
The programme provides an in-depth study of the field of children’s rights, and pays particular attention to how children’s rights laws intersect with other disciplines of law.
International children’s rights is a unique area of law because it is both multi-layered (covering international, regional and national legal systems) and interdisciplinary in its scope.
You will study children’s rights from a comparative perspective, which includes comparisons between international and national children’s rights instruments. You will also look at how children’s rights laws intersect with other disciplines of law, including:
- human rights law
- civil law
- criminal law
- humanitarian law
- family law
- migration law
In this programme, you will take the following courses:
- Interaction between Children’s Rights and other International Legal Systems
- Children in the Justice System
- Child and Family in Private International Law
- Economic, Social and Cultural Rights of Children
- Child Protection and Children’s Rights
- Migration and Children’s Rights
- Enforcement and Monitoring of Children’s Rights
- Children’s rights and digital technologies
Full-time or part-time
You can follow the programme full-time for one year or part-time for two years. Part-time students are offered the same facilities and courses as full-time students, and the courses are offered during the day. For non-European students, the part-time option is not possible because of visa requirements.
