Course content

The general degree is suitable for students seeking a wide range of choice among a number of advanced courses, without narrowly focusing their studies in one area of law. Students must take three taught courses and complete a dissertation. Unless demand is excessive, you may take any of the courses available on the LLM in Commercial Law, the LLM in European Law, the LLM in Innovation, Technology and the Law, the LLM in International Law, the two research-training courses attached to the LLM in Legal Research, or two of the options available on the MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice.
