Law and Gender

Module code: LAW7038-B

This module aims to help students develop an awareness that law impacts differently on different groups of people and that taking a specifically feminist or gendered approach can highlight hidden assumptions and biases inherent in national, European and International Legal Systems. Understanding and appreciating this ultimately leads to a more holistic understanding of law. This module is an important component of the LLM in International Human Rights Law and Development programme because of the significance of gender related issues at national and international levels; and part of the LLM International Legal Studies as one of the significant areas of legal study that students could explore. This module is also suitable for any other postgraduate programme where gender related issues are an important part of the programme aims. Download the PDF for LAW7038-B_2023_4.pdf
