The LLM Regulations (in French) establish the principles governing the organization of the LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights.

While the focus is on humanitarian law in all its aspects, the LLM also provides a thorough base in other aspects of international law, which makes it a versatile degree that can lead to a wide variety of career paths, such as mine, working for the Belgian asylum office.
