Entry requirements

Applicants for the LLM taught programmes should normally hold a minimum of a 2:1 class Honours BA or LLB Law Degree from a UK university. Applicants with degrees from institutions outside the UK will have their applications considered on an individual, but comparable basis (see the International web pages for details of entry requirements by country). All applicants are required to supply: a completed application form, proof of qualifications and two references (one of which must, as a minimum, be academic). Applicants are considered on the basis of academic ability and potential and other relevant considerations are also taken into account. Applicants who have marginally missed the benchmark indicated above, are considered on a discretionary basis.

Course content

Students on this programme graduate with a ‘Masters in Law’ with no named specialism and therefore allows students to mix different subjects without restriction, according to their interests.

There is therefore no requirement for any minimum number of credits to be studied in any particular specialist area or as a dissertation topic. All centres and units of the School of Law and Social Justice, especially the Human Rights and International Law Unit, the Liverpool European Law Unit, the Governance and Business Regulation Unit, the Feminist Legal Research Unit, the Centre for the Study of the Child, the Family and the Law; and the Dilemmas in Health research cluster collaborate in the delivery of this programme.
