There are opportunities to get involved with conferences and research seminars, many of which involve visiting experts from the UK and overseas, as well as staff from the School of Law. By opting for the Sheffield LLM you retain maximum flexibility. You can choose modules from across our whole range of LLM pathways. This course is ideal if you're looking for a strong foundation that covers a range of different areas of study. If you prefer to specialise in a particular subject area, the Sheffield LLM also offers, under the same course code, the option to follow one of three specialist pathways. If you're not sure which specialist pathway you want to follow, don't worry, you can stick with the Sheffield LLM without specialising, or opt to follow one of the pathways on arrival. The choice is yours. Individual modules offered may vary depending on staff availability and the number of students selecting each module.
