Course content

The European Union has never been more topical; as the UK prepares to leave the EU, we offer units that explore the hotly contested legal issues surrounding the free movement of goods and people within Europe, and the creation and enforcement of standards (for example, in competition and environmental law). Visit the Law School's Brexit web pages to explore our active involvement in and responses to the Brexit negotiations.

We offer an exciting and stimulating set of postgraduate law programmes, each of which prepares you for a variety of careers. If you are interested in studying law beyond your undergraduate degree level and want to develop your analytical, research and legal writing skills, you will find Bristols LLM to be a challenging and rewarding experience. We have a large and vibrant international community and our LLM students benefit from small class sizes taught by world-renowned experts.

Our LLM programmes give you the opportunity to specialise in a particular area but you can also opt for a broader and more general set of unit choices. In all cases, you are encouraged to explore your chosen areas of law at a deeper level. You will have the chance to see how these legal fields operate in different contexts, considering the relevant issues theoretically and practically and from a range of perspectives.
