LLB International Human Rights

Students studying in the libraryModule leader: Dr Bharat Malkani

Module description:

This module examines how international human rights law works. The course starts with an introduction to the history and philosophical foundations of human rights, and then moves on to look at how human rights are protected in the international legal system, for example, through the United Nations. We will also look at specific substantive rights, such as the right to life, freedom from torture, and the right to liberty.




Modules and Courses are constantly updated and under review. As with most academic programmes, please remember that it is possible that a module may not be offered in any particular year, for instance because a member of staff is on study leave or too few students opt for it. The University of Birmingham reserves the right to vary or withdraw any course or module.
