What our students say


"The LLM in International Law, was one of the hardest but most rewarding experiences I have had. Since I started University in Venezuela, my dream was always to study this area of law and then gain the necessary qualification to be able to work in an NGO that promotes Human Right causes. Luckily, I can now say that I have accomplished both. The LLM definitely helped me with my research and writing skills. It improved my time management skills and it allowed me to better understand the Irish Legal system. But most importantly it gave me the possibility to learn, critically analyse and discuss topics of International Law that are currently being debated in the world. This LLM opened a great door for my professional career and I am now working in New Communities Partnership, a national organisation that supports the integration of migrant individuals and groups in Ireland."

LLM in International Law

"The LL.M. at Griffith College Dublin was extremely beneficial to me, both on an academic and work related basis. Griffith College Dublin’s LL.M. provided me with the opportunity to work full time and to comfortably complete a full-time course in one year. The lecturers were extremely helpful and enthusiastic about the course material. The course work required a higher level of diligence and commitment than the level 8 LL.B. Degree, which combined with the dissertation portion of the course, further developed my research and legal writing skills to be adapted to my own work environment and my pursuit of further academic study".
