The European University Viadrina in Frankfurt/Oder, Germany, will offer a new program called “Protection of the Individual under International Law in times of peace and war — LL.M. in International Human Rights and Humanitarian Law”. Interestingly, the working language of the program is English which unfortunately cannot be taken for granted in all LL.M. programs offered at German law faculties. Here is some information on the program provided by the organizers:
The unique three-semester program is comprised of presence and distance learning elements with English as its working language. It embraces the full range of international law responses to challenges to human rights and of the systems of individual protection in diverse political, social, economic, geographical and military situations. The teaching faculty is equally diverse and consists of highly qualified human rights teachers and experts from many different countries and varied academic traditions.
The program prepares graduates for career opportunities in policy making, international, public and governmental service, public and private legal practice, work in NGOs, academic teaching and research, and in the military, defense and policing sectors.
For all enquiries regarding the Master’s program please see our website www.rewi.euv-ffo.de/master-ihl or contact the organizers by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications accepted now for the first academic year, starting in April 2009.
Thanks to Lars Olberg for drawing my attention to this.
