Course content

The Executive LLM is one of the most innovative and intellectually exciting of LLM programmes offered in Europe today. Students on the programme will study for the LLM by taking a set of intensive modules over a period of three to four years. It makes available the highest quality post-graduate education, taught by many of the leading academics in the UK, to individuals in full time employment who are not in a position to take a year-long break from work.

The programme is open to applicants who have had at least three years post-degree work experience in law. The programme offers modules in a broad range of fields including arbitration, human rights and international law, and corporate, commercial and financial law.

Enrolment on the degree can take place at any time during the course of the year. Unlike other LLM programmes, there is no requirement to wait until the beginning of the next academic year to start the programme. Modules are offered in week long intensive sessions in September, December and April.

To provide prospective students with further information on the structure of the programme, the modules we will offer, and the student experience at LSE, we have produced an E-Brochure, information video and a Video Wall where current students provide their views on the program.
