Course content

The Master of Laws (LLM Law) course allows students to choose from a wide range of international and English law specialist subjects, including aspects of commercial and international trade law, intellectual property, and international human rights.

This enables graduates to fill the increasing demand for expertise in these areas and to produce their own 'bespoke' degree to suit their career needs.

Furthermore, because many of the modules have an international dimension, the LLM law course has proven to be of great interest to overseas candidates.


  • Students receive a thorough grounding in the legal concepts and principles operating in the areas of law chosen.
  • They are given the opportunity to gain an understanding of areas of social and criminal justice policy where relevant and are introduced to areas of controversy in their selected areas of law and socio-legal studies.
  • The Brunel Law School’s Masters of Law programme is designed to flexible enabling students to either broaden their proficiency in a range of areas or gain in-depth specialist knowledge of a particular subject of interest.
