About this course
The International Law and Human Rights specialization allows students to take advantage of UC Hastings’ thriving international law community while taking courses on public international law and human rights. LL.M. students may be eligible to participate in the Immigrants’ Rights Clinic in which students work directly with clients facing immigration issues including defense against removal proceedings, seeking political asylum, and pursuing U.S. citizenship. LL.M. students may also be eligible to participate in the Refugee and Human Rights Clinic which presents students with a unique opportunity to develop a range of skills relevant to legal advocacy in refugee and human rights issues.
UC Hastings is home to the Center for Gender and Refugee Studies, one of the nation's leading refugee advocacy organizations, engaging in research, national policy work, impact litigation, and other strategies in defense of asylum seekers.
