human rights & business (and a few other things)

First graduates of the MA Human Rights and Business at Middlesex

The graduation ceremony of Middlesex University School of Law was held on Wednesday 17 July. It is always a special occasion for students, their families and staff. This one was even more special for me as the first participants in the MA Human Rights and Business graduated.

The School of Law stuck to its great tradition of granting honorary doctorates to individuals with strong human rights backgrounds. After Shami Chakrabarti (Director of Liberty) in 2011 and Fatou Bensouda (Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court) in 2012, Michael D. Higgins, the current President of the Republic of Ireland, is now a doctor honoris causa of the University.
