Course content

The Employment Law LLM is an intensive masters course aimed at both practising legal professionals and those seeking to enter the legal profession. Employment law is relevant to all organisations, making it a great addition to your CV. The course is designed to help you broaden your experience, increase your practising options and enhance your career.

What will you study

Kingston University's LLM courses allow you to specialise and tailor your degree to a topic of your choice, while also giving you the flexibility to take modules on other subjects, making it flexible and easy to adapt to your interests and career goals.

You will complete work worth 180 credits by studying four 30-credit modules and one 60-credit dissertation module.

In addition to the Law School's team of highly skilled academics, courses are taught by experienced practitioners, and many of our lecturing staff combine teaching with legal practice. This helps to ensure that the courses are constantly refreshed with the latest industry thinking and practice, and provides you with the opportunity to mix with people who can provide hands-on experience and insight into their area of legal work.

Kingston Law School has strong links with The Law Society, the professional body that represents practising solicitors in England and Wales.
