We believe in the importance of inter-disciplinary study and are keen to ensure diversity of skills among the student cohort. An undergraduate law degree (minimum 2:2) is usually necessary for meeting our entry requirements; however graduates from related disciplines may still apply for an LLM degree if we can be convinced that they possess the skills to study law at a Masters level. Those without a law background would be required to undertake a course entitled 'Introduction to the Law' during induction week. In appropriate cases, we also ask for an IELTS score of 6.5.
Months of entry
In a fast-changing global marketplace, disputes are often resolved by arbitrators before they reach the courts. The need for skilled mediators and informed experts is growing, especially in the digital world, as areas such as trade, intellectual property (IP), copyright, and fraud become more prevalent and intricate. An LLM in this field at Middlesex gives you the learning, experience and network of connections to prosper in this important sector.
