Hi all! I'm almost done with my BA in Political Science and History at McGill University where I have focused most of my degree on international relations with attention to human rights-related courses. I hope to go into human rights policy analysis at the international NGO or intergovernmental organization level.
I've been accepted to various MA International Relations programs but the program I'm most intrigued by that I've been accepted to is an LLM in Human Rights Law at University of Edinburgh Law School. They say that they usually only accept those who have a prior law degree but sometimes accept people with an undergraduate background in international law or human rights law from a social sciences perspective, of which I have both and seem to have lucked out. I feel like having a legal component to my IR background pertaining to human rights would be beneficial in order to go into policy analysis, as international human rights law is primarily a treaty-based system as opposed to domestic human rights activism which doesn't interest me.
Sorry for the long read. Has anyone on here done this course/currently studying this course/applying for this course? I'm trying to find out as much as I can, thank you in advance!
