A master’s degree in Laws is a fantastic way for Law graduates to develop a specialisation, or for non-lawyers working in related fields to gain a deeper understanding of legal issues.
Since Law is a vast and diverse subject, we offer a huge amount of flexibility in this general LLM programme. You also have the option of taking one of our specialist pathways that focus on different topics:
- LLM Business and Financial Law*
- LLM Energy and Natural Resources Law
- LLM Human Rights Advocacy*
- LLM International Law*
- LLM FinTech Law
The pathways align to our major research strengths in areas like legal education, international legal research and human rights – but you can study modules from all these areas if you opt for the general LLM.
*These LLMs also have an optional placement year available. Giving you the opportunity, to gain hands on experience and connect what you will have learnt at university to the legal industry. Placements will be provided and supported either by us or a partner organisation where you'll gain worthwhile and practical real-world experience in handling issues relating to aspects of social welfare law. This is a unique and exceptional opportunity for you to work in law. International students wanting to do the Placement year must indicate so upon application. This will add a full-time year onto your study.
Our LLM is ideal training for paralegals, journalists, NGO and charity workers, policy advisors, consultants, lawyers, those working in business and finance or anyone who will benefit from a legal education in their career.
