What will I learn?

Course Summary

A master’s degree in law is a fantastic way for law graduates to develop a specialisation, or for non-lawyers working in related fields to gain a deeper understanding of legal issues. Since law is a vast and diverse subject, we offer a huge amount of flexibility in this general LLM programme. You also have the option of taking one of our specialist pathways that focus on different topics (see related courses below).

The course is perfect for lawyers and law graduates looking for career development, although all of our LLM courses can be studied by students without a background in law, since you will be trained in the necessary analytical and legal skills. As such, the programme will also provide ideal training for paralegals, journalists, NGO and charity workers, policy advisors, consultants, lawyers, those working in business and finance or anyone who will benefit from a legal education in their career.

Your Future Career

If you already have a law career then this course gives you the chance to specialise with focused, professional training in the fields that interest you. The course provides the opportunity to undertake a work-based project so you can gain practical experience and build professional links, while our renowned Law Clinic enables you to work on real legal cases with local people to enhance your clinical skills.

You can also study this course if you are a professional working in related areas and would benefit from an understanding of contemporary legal issues in business, human rights, international law and other fields. A legal education is highly attractive to employers in any sector, as it demonstrates a huge range of transferable skills, an analytical intelligence, and an understanding of the regulatory frameworks that would apply to any business or organisation. If you go for the placement option, your degree will take an extra year. Placement is not available to part-time students.
