Entry requirements

In order to maintain an intellectually enriching environment for our students, the City LLM application process is selective. We are interested in receiving applications from individuals with an upper second class honours degree in law (roughly equivalent to a B or B+) from a recognised international institution. Applicants with a first degree in a subject other than law will be considered, but may restrict the choice of modules where content is dependent on a prior knowledge of law. 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.

Months of entry

January, September

Course content

Each year, the City Law School admits approximately 120 outstanding graduate students from around the world to our selective and challenging Master of Laws (LLM) degree programme.

Our students come from a wide range of backgrounds, some are recent graduates and some have years of experience in the field of law already, from employment at law firms or as in house counsel, from non-legal work in finance and energy sectors, or from involvement in international organisations and NGOs.
