Entry requirements

Applicants should normally hold a good first degree in law, or an equivalent qualification in a related discipline, and must be fluent in written and spoken English. We expect applicants who are not nationals of English-speaking countries OR have not successfully completed an academic qualification equivalent to a UK undergraduate degree taught in English to have an overall IELTS score of at least 7.0. Applicants with a first degree in a subject other than law will be considered, but it should be noted that this may restrict the choice of modules where content is dependent on a prior knowledge of law.

Course content

The Specialist LLM in European Union Law provides you with the knowledge, skills and insight required for the practice and application of European Union (EU) law. The City Law School is one of very few Higher Education institutions in the UK offering as broad a range of electives in European Union related legal subjects.

The masters degree in European Union Law will benefit those who seek to work in professional, public and commercial sectors involving EU law rules and practices. The areas covered will touch on not only the fundamentals of EU law but also, some of the more cutting edge areas of developing EU law.

This Specialist LLM will equip you with the fundamentals of European Union law including free movement rules within the EU, EU business regulation, EU public law, EU procedural law, and EU Competition law. Other less common areas would also be touched on in the key electives. You will have the opportunity to research novel and developing areas of EU law under the guidance of expert EU law tutors.
