Law

The LLM in Law is a new programme that enables you to develop a personal programme of study and further your interests in areas of law from across our LLM programmes. Your programme will be underpinned by two core modules: on law and legal systems, and on research methods and skills. You will add your choice of modules from our LLM in International Corporate and Commercial Law, LLM in Legal and Political Theory, and LLM in International Human Rights Law and Practice. You will complete the programme with a supervised dissertation on a topic inspired by one or more of your chosen modules. Overall, therefore, you can tailor your own programme of study, to prepare yourself for further academic study or for a range of legal careers including progression to the next stage of professional qualification, or for a wide range of other employment opportunities. At the same time, you can enjoy the benefits of world-class research-led teaching, problem-based learning, and learning law in context.

Entry requirements
