Welcomes You to the Internationally Acclaimed Graduate Program in Intercultural Human Rights


St. Thomas University School of Law in Miami, Florida offers a 15-course, one-year LL.M. degree in Intercultural Human Rights featuring top scholars from around the world.

Now in its fifteenth year, the program offers in-depth instruction in doctrinal and skills courses on the critical issue of our time: the protection of human dignity across political, religious, social, economic and cultural lines.

The faculty of global distinction includes top-level United Nations experts, outstanding scholars, judges and practitioners in the field---Professor Guy S. Goodwin-Gill (Oxford), Professor Francesco Francioni (European University Institute, Florence), and Professor Fausto Pocar (International Criminal Court for the former Yugoslavia), to mention but a few.

The program consists of 15 mostly one-week intensive courses designed to offer the highest quality of education in international law, human rights law, humanitarian law, universal and regional systems of human rights protection, and human rights lawyering.

The program celebrates diversity and dialogue among cultures. It has graduated 327 students from 77 countries since its inception in 2001. We are proud of our alumni who are contributing to an order of human dignity in human rights institutions, in NGOs, courts of law, law schools and colleges.

The LL.M. degree is earned in one year, upon completion of 24 academic credits. The program's setting in Miami, Florida - the Sunshine State, also offers breathtaking natural beauty and an exciting intercultural environment.
