Queen Mary, University of London, is launching a LLM Programme in Immigration Law, starting September 2014, with full time and part time options.
The Programme will provide students with the opportunity to study legal responses to the global phenomenon of migratory movements at international, supranational and domestic levels and to understand the rationale and operation of the law in context.
The curriculum offers a comprehensive overview of the major legal and theoretical issues concerning immigration law and policy from a domestic, comparative, European and international perspective. Modules include international migration and refugee law, European migration and asylum law, comparative immigration and nationality law, cultural diversity and the law, and migration, rights and security.
This LLM is unique globally as it is taught by leading scholars in the field and will expose students to insights not only from academics, but also from legal practitioners, international organisations and NGOs.
To support the launch of the programme, the School is offering two partial scholarships worth 50 percent of the tuition fee to full time applicants.
Candidates must apply by 27 May for the LLM in Immigration Law and complete the scholarship application by 6 June 2014. For further details on the programme, click here. For requirements and conditions regarding funding opportunities, see here.
