LLM Concentration in Human Rights and Comparative Constitutional Law
The LLM Concentration in Human Rights and Comparative Constitutional Law provides students with a robust, critical, and comparative foundation in both human rights and constitutional law. It offers students a comprehensive understanding of contemporary human rights practices, including uses of constitutional law, in both domestic and international settings. The concentration builds on two strengths of Texas Law — its constitutional law faculty, often considered to be among the best in the country, and the internationally recognized Rapoport Center, which serves as a focal point at the University for critical, interdisciplinary analysis and practice of human rights and social justice. Each student may design an individual course of study tailored to his or her academic and professional interests, taking advantage of extensive curricular and clinical offerings, devoted interdisciplinary faculty, and ongoing research projects and working groups at the Rapoport Center. This concentration is open to students with a foreign law degree and students with a J.D.
