Course content

If you’re ready to take your legal career in a specific direction, the LLM is an excellent next step.

This course is designed to expand your knowledge of the law while developing your advanced legal research skills. You can keep your LLM broad, or you can specialise in one of four areas:

  • Equality Law
  • European Law
  • Human Rights
  • Law and Society

Digging deeper

You’ll learn from our academic specialists and practising legal professionals as you take a more in-depth look at how and why the law is formed and how it’s applied.

You’ll also explore how it relates to policy and policy-making processes on national, European and international levels.

As you expand your legal knowledge, you’ll also develop advanced critical, analytical and evaluative skills.

Research with impact

The research project will allow you to focus on an area of law that interests you. You’ll work with specialist researchers who are shaping the legal environment, from discrimination law to medical ethics.

This is the perfect environment if you have ambitions of becoming an expert in a particular area of law or pursuing a career in legal research.
