Course content

Do you want to build your own degree programme? With no compulsory modules, this course enables you to build your own degree, developing a breadth of interests or finding your own niche specialism. Our Director of Advanced Legal Studies will help you to construct an appropriate programme of study tailored to your individual needs and interests, whether from modules offered through the Law School or approved options from other departments.

This programme enables you to develop your own legal specialism. For example, in: justice and security; gender and corporate governance; social and economic change and nongovernment organisations (NGOs); and human rights and global capital. You will be assessed through different methods, which may include essays, examinations, portfolios, presentations and a dissertation.

Some of our recent postgraduates have gone on to work for NGOs, governmental and regulatory bodies, and legal services; others have used the LLM to progress to a PhD.
