Dear friends, The Transitional Justice Institute (with the School of Law) at the University of Ulster in Northern Ireland invites applications for its LLM in Human Rights Law commencing September 2007. Building on Northern Ireland experiences, this innovative Masters programme offers students a unique opportunity to examine the role of human rights law in post-conflict transitions - both locally and internationally. Modules address a range of timely themes including: challenges to realising the human rights and equality of women and minority groups; critical perspectives on the 'rule of law' and policing in transitions; human rights and the ongoing 'war on terror'; human rights and humanitarian interventions; globalisation, development and human rights; and human rights of indigenous peoples. Because the LLM programme pays special attention to the relationship between social and economic inequalities and the law in transitions, it is likely to be of particular interest to list subscribers. Students may pursue their studies on a full or part-time basis at either the Jordanstown (Belfast) or Magee (L/Derry) campus. See www.transitionaljustice.ulster.ac.uk for more details on TJI and the LLM programme. For information on Northern Ireland see www.discovernorthernireland.com. The deadline for applications is Friday June 29 2007. However, all prospective students, especially international candidates, are strongly urged to submit applications by Thursday 29 March 2007 in order to enhance the possibility of successful applicants securing funding to enable their participation. To apply online please go to: www.ulster.ac.uk/applyonline Applications received before June 27,2007 will be given priority. However, applications received after that date may also be considered.
