The Faculty of Law of the University of Hong Kong is a top global law school, ranked 21st in the world by the QS World University Rankings in 2021. Since its establishment, the Faculty has gained considerable international recognition for its human rights and public law research, teaching and learning.

The Master of Laws (LL.M) in Human Rights Programme was established in 1999 in response to the growing demand for knowledge about human rights in the Asia-Pacific region. We offer full and partial competitive scholarships and have attracted students from a broad range of backgrounds. Our students include legal practitioners, judges, advocates working for national human rights institutions and civil society organisations, journalists, doctors, scholars, government officials, and many others. This diversity has enriched the learning experience and contributed to a vibrant international alumni network.

The Programme focuses on human rights issues of global concern, including in the Asia-Pacific region, and aims to foster an active learning environment. The diverse range of courses enables students to 1) understand the international human rights legal framework, 2) reflect on key human rights challenges from global, regional, and domestic perspectives, and 3) apply their knowledge to advocate for real change. The curriculum covers human rights law but draws on other disciplines such as history, politics, philosophy, and sociology to ensure the law is understood in context. It also has a clinical Capstone option so students can apply what they learn in practice. Teachers include renowned experts in the field from around the world including eminent scholars, judges, United Nations human rights mandate holders, and heads of non-governmental organisations. The Programme is offered on a one-year full-time or two-year part-time basis.

This is an important time to get involved and have an impact on the regional and global human rights landscape. We look forward to your application, and have you joining us in the 2022-23 academic year!

All the best,

Kelley Loper
