Course content

Our Master of Laws programmes provide an excellent way to develop in-depth knowledge and specialist skills you need to make you stand out in a competitive job market. We have designed two courses in the key areas of Conflict Resolution or Intellectual Property. Each of our LLM programmes offer an internationally recognised Master’s award. This course will provide you with valuable insight into how the English legal system operates, with an emphasis on your chosen specialist legal area of either Conflict Resolution or Intellectual Property.

  • LLM Legal Practice (Conflict Resolution)
  • LLM Legal Practice (Intellectual Property)
