Minimum upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in Law.
Months of entry
The LLM programme may be completed either through one year of full-time study or two, three or four years of part-time study. All students apply to the general LLM programme, but have the option of pursuing a specialised LLM.
Examinations for all taught modules will be held in May/June of each year and the dissertation will be due for submission during September of the final year of registration. The assessment for each module may vary.
It is expected that all students will graduate with an LLM in law. A student who wishes to graduate with a specialised LLM is required to take at least three (3.0) units and write their dissertation, which will be worth two (2.0) units, within their chosen specialisation. The fourth (4.0) unit can be taken outside of the LLM specialism or, with the LLM tutor’s permission, outside of the School of Law. Year-long modules are worth 1.0 unit, while single-term modules are worth 0.5 units. A student will thus complete between four and eight taught modules during his or her LLM programme.
