  • Objectives
    The LLM Law and Political Justice is a collaboration between Birkbeck and the University of Pretoria, South Africa. This programme offers a unique opportunity to engage with the political philosophy of justice. Informed by continental and critical traditions in social and political thought, the programme engages with a complex set of concerns: human rights, imperialism and post-colonialism, the law of development and the racial ordering of capitalism. To what extent can a progressive political philosophy of justice guide an account of law’s role in these national and global processes? The degree offers taught elements, including a compulsory course in post-apartheid jurisprudence, and a chance to develop your own approach in a dissertation. The LLM would appeal to practitioners in development who want to pursue detailed study of law and legal theory as well as to those seeking a research training and to human rights activists.
