The LLM programme in International Human Rights Law will ultimately help prepare graduates for a (legal) career in performing human rights related assignments in governmental or EU institutions and ministries, the UN or other international organizations, non-governmental organizations (such as Amnesty International or Greenpeace), in the international commercial sector, internationally operating enterprises, and academic institutions.

Below you will see a distribution of the different arenas where past students are currently working. And here you can read about the career paths of our Faculty international graduates, for example a graduate of this programme who works at a Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and another who pursued a PhD.

Further, all students have access to the university Careers Services Law which can help them in finding and preparing for internships and employment.
