Course content

The LL.M programme offers several specialist streams. However, those students who want to take full advantage of the School's impressively wide range of course units on offer in any year can choose to take the programme without any specialisation at all. Students are therefore afforded the opportunity to decide which aspects of the law will have the most relevance to their own future professional or academic career, and to choose accordingly the subjects that will make up their programme of study. This offers students the most flexible way to pursue their programme of advanced legal study, and will suit those who do not want to limit themselves to just one particular aspect of the law. The programme's compulsory research element (see Module Details) will allow students to develop their research skills and deepen their understanding on specific areas within their own choice of subjects.

Information for international students

Students whose first language is not English are required to hold IELTS 7.0 with a minimum writing score of 7, or TOEFL 106 internet-based, or Cambridge Certificate Grade C.
