The usual qualification for entry to the LLM programme is a degree in law, or a degree with a substantial law content, of at least 2.1 honours (or equivalent). Law graduates with 2.2 honours who also have other legal qualifications and/or substantial professional legal experience may also qualify.
Non-law graduates may be considered on the basis of any professional experience that directly relates to the subject area. Non-law graduates with a minimum second class honours degree that have also obtained a Merit (or 60 per cent) in the Common Professional Examination (CPE) and Bar Finals/Legal Practice examinations, or passed the solicitors’ qualifying examination, may qualify.
Months of entry
The Dual LLM in Commercial Law (Singapore and London) programme aims to provide students with a unique opportunity to study commercial law in two major commercial hubs, Singapore and London. The programme is designed to give you a broad overview of Asian commercial law in Singapore followed by the opportunity to build on this knowledge by going into more depth in London, through more specialised taught modules as well as a dissertation.
This is a highly intensive 15-month degree programme where you will gain insight into the legal underpinnings of commerce in the East and West. On successful completion you will be awarded a Dual LLM in Commercial Law (Singapore and London) from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) in the UK and Singapore Management University (SMU) in Singapore.
