Law (General)

The Master of Laws (LLM) is one of 22 LLM programmes of study at Queen Mary. It is designed to give students maximum flexibility in their choice of modules and dissertation topic. The programme allows students to follow a variety of interests (and take modules simply because they enjoy them) or to select a range of modules designed with a specific career or personal aspiration in mind.

Entry requirements

Degree in law, or a degree with a substantial law content, normally of at least upper 2nd Class Honours (or equivalent); non-law graduates may be considered on the basis of exceptional professional experience that directly relates to specialist LLM taught courses; non-law graduates with good Honours, that have also obtained the equivalent of good Honours in CPE and Bar Finals/Legal Practice examinations, or passed the solicitors� qualifying examination, may qualify; law graduates with high 2.2 Honours and at least 5 years professional legal experience may also qualify.

Course modules

To specialise in this area, students must select 90 credits of modules from this list and do their compulsory dissertation in the field of Banking and Finance Law (45 credits). The additional 45 credits of taught modules can be in this area or can be unrelated and therefore selected from the full list of LLM available modules.
