Course content

The LLM Law is available to students from both a legal and non-legal background. The programme has a strong emphasis on flexibility of choice. Students have diverse backgrounds, needs and aspirations and this course allows them to design a programme of study, at a suitable postgraduate level, to meet those needs. Law is a fast-changing and increasingly complex area that impacts on most aspects of professional, commercial and regulatory work. This programme provides students with analytical and reflective skills and expertise in law. It provides a learning experience which will enable students to develop their academic ability and enhance their performance in employment and further develop their career opportunities. It provides the successful candidate with a recognised postgraduate qualification in law.

Students from a non-law background take Foundations of Law. There are no other core modules. Students choose a total of five taught modules from a wide range of options covering business law, employment law, environmental law, human rights, International law and medical law. There is training in advanced legal research methods and the culmination of the programme is a 15,000 word dissertation.
