Law (Public Law)

The Public Law LLM programme explores issues in public policy and the law. It focuses particularly on the relationship between the pressures that operate within particular areas of public policy, and the role of law in setting the framework for decision-making and as a tool for achieving policy goals. We offer an exciting and stimulating set of postgraduate law programmes, each of which prepares you for a variety of careers. If you are interested in studying law beyond your undergraduate degree level and want to develop your analytical, research and legal writing skills, you will find Bristol's LLM to be a challenging and rewarding experience. We have a large and vibrant international community and our LLM students benefit from small class sizes taught by world-renowned experts. Our LLM programmes give you the opportunity to specialise in a particular area but you can also opt for a broader and more general set of unit choices. In all cases, you are encouraged to explore your chosen areas of law at a deeper level. You will have the chance to see how these legal fields operate in different contexts, considering the relevant issues theoretically and practically and from a range of perspectives.

Entry requirements

LLM: An upper second-class honours degree in law (or international equivalent). Exceptionally, we will also consider applicants who have: an upper second-class honours degree that included content relevant to the applicant's proposed field of study; or an upper second-class honours degree in any subject, along with relevant experience in a discipline closely related to the focus of this programme. Applicants in either of these two exceptional cases must make a case explaining why their qualifications or experience fall into category (1) or (2) in their personal statement. Recognised Prior Learning is currently not accepted. Previous or professional experience is not required. See international equivalent qualifications on the International Office website.
