What will I learn?

Course Description

Our flagship LL.M programme offers students the opportunity for postgraduate study where they can select modules from a substantial list of modules covering the disparate branches of law. Students can focus on public law or private law modules or may take a selection of both. This programme will enable students to develop the skills to use appropriate legal theories, doctrines and concepts to identify, formulate, analyse and solve legal problems within national and international contexts and identify, evaluate and synthesise jurisprudential theories and concepts at a level appropriate to masters graduates.

The LL.M degree is delivered over one academic year and seeks to promote critical analysis of, and reflection on, different aspects of national, European and international law. Students on this programme are examined in six modules and will also complete a research dissertation on a topic approved by the Dissertation Director and related to some aspect of law.

During their studies, students can choose from a vast array list of modules designed to deepen their knowledge of public and private law. Module offerings focus on all areas of law from Commercial Arbitration, Corporate Governance, Digital Technologies Law, EU Consumer Law, International Aviation Law to the Chinese Legal system, International Criminal Law, International and European Human Rights Law, Islamic Law and Refugee Law.

The Law School reserves the right to vary the above list and, in particular, the right to withdraw and add modules. Note that modules are offered in one semester only and timetabling considerations may also restrict choice. Further information on the precise modules available in a given year is available on the LL.M website.
