Our Law and Society (Legal Research) LLM is an ideal preparation for a PhD. It will give you the knowledge, insights and analytical skills to proceed to a career in academia or the public, voluntary or private sectors.
The LLM can be taken as a standalone course before undertaking PhD study.
It also forms the initial training component for the four-year (LLM plus PhD) ESRC Northern Ireland/ North East (NINE) Doctoral Training Centre.
The course is ideal if you want to gain advanced research skills that will allow you to progress to PhD level study in the field of law and society. You will have an opportunity to study key legal topics relevant to law and society and choose from a range of optional modules suited to your specific interests.
