Course content

This course allows you to build your own personalised LLM by choosing from our wide range of specialist modules, meaning you can study areas that interest you.

We offer a wide variety of law modules in different specialist areas. There are options in:

  • corporate law
  • competition
  • banking
  • trade law
  • investment law
  • intellectual property
  • e-commerce
  • environmental law
  • climate change
  • water law
  • international law
  • human rights law
  • international criminal justice
  • international security
  • transnational crime

As well as specialisms delivered by our staff, there are options in oil and gas or energy law (from the Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law and Policy). You can also choose from business, and politics and international relations.

Students often combine topics from different areas. For example, you might want to combine an understanding of corporate and commercial law with environmental law, or to combine an understanding of security with international criminal justice.

This wide choice allows you to develop existing areas of specialism or to expand your knowledge into new areas of law that you have not studied or practised in before.
