Course content

Law is a fascinating, complex and practically significant social phenomenon. From the regulation of private conflicts to the structure of government, virtually no aspect of our social lives is outside its grasp. The LLM in Law and Society at Keele allows students to gain a rigorous understanding of law and legal institutions from an interdisciplinary perspective. It is a selective programme that delivers high quality postgraduate training to students wishing to pursue a PhD in law and socio-legal studies or a career at the bar or within the public and NGO sectors.

The LLM combines a set of foundational core modules in law and society with a flexible choice of electives. Studying the LLM supports a deep understanding of the relationship between law and society, provides training in innovative methods and the acquisition of transferable skills, and promotes genuine interdisciplinarity.
