Professional Legal Skills
You can only apply for the LLM in Professional Legal Skills if you are enrolled to undertake the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) at The City Law School or if you registered to take the BPTC with us in the last five years. All students accepted will be expected to attend an Induction Day. Students will not be permitted to register on the LLM if they have 4 or more required BPTC resits at the time of registration.
To be awarded the LLM in Professional Legal Skills you need to complete a dissertation on a personally selected topic. When you apply for the LLM you will be asked to put forward a proposal for this dissertation. An idea for a dissertation proposal could arise from:
A topic studied on the BPTC that you would be interested in covering in greater depth and/or from a particular angle;
A current issue in legal professional practice raised, or issues in an area you would like to practice in;
Applying scholarship and concepts from another discipline, such as psychology to legal professional knowledge and/or skills;
A topic that arises in a mini pupillage or pro bono work.
Assessment includes research, write and submit a dissertation of 15-20,000 words.
