Law Programs: LL.M. in Human Rights and M.A. in Human Rights

Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Human Rights

Regent Law School's Master of Laws (LL.M.) with a concentration in Human Rights provides an advanced understanding of international, regional, and domestic human rights protection and promotion from a biblical perspective. This human rights degree is ideal for students with a passion for change who want to combine their legal education and Christian values to make a lasting difference. The LL.M. in Human Rights program exists in partnership with Regent's Center for Global Justice. Through the Center for Global Justice, the law school equips advocates to seek justice and provide hope and legal protection for the oppressed and vulnerable while working to promote human rights and the rule of law in our community and around the world. Students in our Virginia LL.M. program normally complete their studies in one academic year (two semesters).
