Course content

The Law School offers a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme for professionals interested in studying Masters level modules as single units.

The CPD Programme is designed for busy professionals already committed to a career path, not necessarily in law, and enables students to pace their studies according to their own professional commitments.

The programme offers a flexible study format. Students may choose to study one unit only, thereby earning one LLM unit, or they may wish to go further and obtain a full LLM by successfully completing four modular units and a dissertation.
