The University of Ulster in Newtownabbey, UK belongs to the top 3% of all universities worldwide. Another thing that distinguishes it from many law schools is its LLM programme in Gender, Conflict and Human Rights, which is the only one of its type in the UK. Ulster Law' School's research excellence ranks first in the UK for its impact and teaching is delivered by renowned international experts.
The LLM programmes offered by Ulster may be taken from its Transitional Justice Institute (TJI). TJI was instituted in 2003 and now has two campuses in UK, one in Belfast and one in Derry. Besides the Master of Laws in Gender, Conflict and Human Rights, Ulster Law also offers the following LLM degrees:
- LLM in Clinical Legal Education
- LLM in Human Rights Law & Transitional Justice
All three LLM programmes may be accomplished within 12 months if taken full time and 24 months, part time. All courses start in September. However, it will greatly interest prospective students to know that they can still submit their applications for the autumn 2017. These may still be accepted, depending on the availability of slots. At the time of writing, there are still some available spaces.
The applications for full time or part time LLM courses must be submitted through Ulster's online application system. Those using it for the first time will need to create an account. Personal information and details about the applicant's education, employment, funding, qualifications, references and personal statement will be asked. There is still time to submit applications for the September 2017 LLM classes. As classes are about to start, this should be done immediately.
