Program Description

LL.M. International and Comparative Law

Trinity College Dublin

With the increased globalisation of the last twenty years and, even earlier, with the rise to prominence of the international human rights movement, there has been the impetus for students of all nationalities towards studying areas of law with a broad international and comparative focus. This programme will allow students to engage meaningfully in comparative legal research using mature comparative law methodology and develop flexibility, adaptability and independence in order to engage productively with a changing, social, cultural and international environment.

The LL.M. (International and Comparative Law) is delivered over one academic year. It seeks to promote critical analysis of, and reflection on, different aspects of international law and comparative law. Students on this programme are examined in six modules and will also complete a research dissertation on a topic approved by the Dissertation Director and related to some aspect of the international and comparative law.

In the LL.M (International and Comparative Law) we offer students the chance to study from a large range of modules with a broad international and comparative law feel - many of which relate to international and regional human rights. Module offerings may include International and European Human Rights Law, International Criminal Law, International Economic Law, Islamic Law, Refugee Law as well as comparative modules relating to Digital Technologies Law, International Aviation Law and Freedom of Expression and Intellectual Property Law. Students may also choose up to two modules from the wide array offered on the LLM (General) ranging from Financial Services Law to Copyright Law.

The Law School reserves the right to vary the above list and, in particular, the right to withdraw and add modules. Note that modules are offered in one semester only and timetabling considerations may also restrict choice. Further information on the precise modules available in a given year is available on the LL.M website.

Applications are therefore invited from well-qualified graduates who hold a very good Honors Bachelor degree in law or in a law-based interdisciplinary programme.

Applications will also be considered from exceptional graduates in related disciplines in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences who can convincingly demonstrate that their studies have fully prepared them for the LLM.

Assuming that this basic pre-requisite is in place, thereafter admission to the various LLM programmes is at the absolute discretion of the School of Law, which will decide on questions of admission having regard to a wide range of academic criteria, including the quality of the individual application and the objectives of ensuring a diverse LLM class of the highest possible academic calibre. Admission requirements may vary from programme to programme and from year to year.
