Course content

The LLM Law enables you to develop a personal programme of study and further your interests in areas of law from across our LLM programmes.

Your programme will be underpinned by two core modules: 'Legal Systems: Sources and Operations' and 'Research Skills for Dissertation Writing'.

You will add your choice of modules from our LLM International Corporate and Commercial Law: LLM Art Law; LLM Legal and Political Theory, and LLM International Human Rights Law and Practice. You will complete the programme with a supervised dissertation on a topic inspired by one or more of your chosen modules.

Therefore, you can tailor your own programme of study, to prepare yourself for further academic study or for a range of legal careers including progression to the next stage of a professional qualification, or for a wide range of other employment opportunities. At the same time, you can enjoy the benefits of world-class research-led teaching, problem-based learning, and learning law in context.
