With a Master of Laws postgraduate degree from City, you can create your own programme of study to enhance, develop or transform your career.

Who is it for?

The Master of Laws postgraduate course is for students who are looking to enhance their legal careers or shift focus to a new area of law. The flexibility of the programme and the 50+ modules on offer means that you can use the course to define your own Master of Laws postgraduate experience.

Our students come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some have just completed undergraduate degrees while others have experience in private practice at law firms or as in-house counsel. We also attract students who have engaged in non-legal work in sectors including finance and energy, public service and NGOs.

Objectives

The Master of Laws LLM at City has a practical, global focus designed to deepen your knowledge and accelerate your career.

The programme has been structured to showcase the most current legal debates, and to expose you to professional practitioners and leading academics. It will give you the skills to tackle complex legal problems within your chosen subjects while also offering a wealth of opportunities including pro bono clinics, guest lectures, recruitment fairs and internships.

The Master of Laws offers extensive choice when it comes to what you learn. You can opt for a general Masters of Law degree by selecting courses from our extensive list of modules, or pursue one of several specialisms in fields such as Public International Law, International Commercial Law and European Union Law. This means you can design your own degree and build your learning around your academic and professional goals.

Placements

In 2012 City University London founded a legal advice clinic focusing on advising start-ups in London’s Silicon Roundabout. The clinic, called Start-Ed, is the first of its kind in the country and has won many awards and grants. Under supervision from a solicitor, you can gain experience assisting real clients that include tech start-ups and meet the people behind London’s most exciting new business ideas.

Academic facilities

The LLM course is primarily taught at Gray’s Inn Place campus with some modules elsewhere. Here you will find the Atkin Building which houses a Law student common room and a large lecture theatre. There is also a Law common room at Northampton Square.

As a City Law School student you will benefit from everything the Institution has to offer including the Learning Success department and Lawbore, an online resource designed to help you find the information you need for the course modules. All course modules have online depositories through Moodle.

The City Law School has its own dedicated administration team and you also have access to two legal libraries, one at the Gray’s Inn campus and the other based on site at our Northampton Square campus.

As part of the University of London you can also become a member of Senate House Library for free with your student ID card. Our excellent location in London puts us within walking distance of the British Library which has a collection of over 150 million items and a extensive law resources.

Teaching and learning

Assessment will draw on a range of approaches which include written coursework, presentations, skills work, in-class tests, projects and a dissertation. The majority of modules will be assessed on the basis of written coursework of 5,000-5,500 words.

The 30-credit dissertation module will involve the submission of a dissertation of 10,000 words on a subject agreed with your supervisor/Programme Director. If you decide to opt for the 60-credit dissertation instead, you will need to submit a dissertation of 20,000 words on a subject agreed with your supervisor/Programme Director.

Most modules have a single combined assessment with 100% weighting but there are some where there is more than one assessment and the weighting for each will be 50%.

You have the option of completing formative coursework in each module. The formative assessment will give you an opportunity to understand and appreciate the academic levels expected. At different stages of the programme, you will have the opportunity to develop and demonstrate legal research, quantitative, cognitive and other skills in addition to your knowledge and understanding of the subjects.

The dissertation gives you an opportunity to display competence in legal research and to explore your specific interests more deeply. There is a degree of autonomous learning at this stage in the programme. You will be demonstrating how you can manage information as well as developing complex arguments and in some cases innovative solutions to specific legal problems.

Each assessment tests whether you:
-Have grasped the relevant principles.
-Are able to analyse and interpret those principles critically.
-Are able to apply them to complex factual problems.
-Can present the relevant points in concise, clear and grammatical terms.

Modules

The general Master of Laws postgraduate degree programme offers students a high degree of flexibility. You can tailor your own suite of specialist elective modules to meet your interests and career aspirations. All modules take a contemporary approach to the study of law and your instructors are scholars and practitioners of the highest calibre committed to giving you the knowledge and skills to tackle complex issues in legal study and practice.

To pursue the general Master of Laws LLM programme you can choose from more than 50 modules covering diverse subjects – everything from Human Rights and Energy Law to Mergers or Money Laundering. Or you can study one of 12 specialist LLM programmes, in which case you will need to study certain subject-specific modules.

Career prospects

The City Law School has a vibrant Pro Bono programme and all students are able to take up opportunities from this programme.

As a graduate from the Master of Laws LLM you are well placed to continue your career in professional legal/corporate practice or apply your degree to many other areas. From business to management, and from banking to NGOs, our students continue their careers in myriad fields.

Modules

You'll study seven modules required by the professional bodies for students intending to apply for the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC):

- Introduction to the English legal system
You'll be introduced to the basic structure of the English Legal System and the essential aspects of civil and criminal litigation. You'll explore sources of law and key skills such as statutory interpretation, reading of law reports and the concept of judicial precedent. This introductory course will assist you in the study of the core modules, where legal skills will be developed further.

- Law of the European Union
Law of the European Union reflects the importance of EU law in the English Legal system. It is important to the management of the UK economy and relevant to the financial practitioners in the City. Business leader's decisions are influenced by EU competition law. It is important to migrants and practitioners of immigration law, to consumers and trading standards officials, to all employees through employment law and to all of us in relation to the environment.

- Obligations 1 (law of contract)
This module covers the principles of English contract law, sources, development, application in context and reform and includes reference to European developments. Contract is treated from formation to discharge and remedies with underlying concepts, rationales and influences and its relation to other forms of liability. Through the subject treatment, particularly examination of judicial reasoning and legislative technique, knowledge and skills are taught and/or developed. Skills include problem-solving, critical evaluation, reasoned argument and communication.

- Obligations 2 (law of tort)
You'll learn about civil liability in tort, focusing on an in-depth analysis of negligence, employers' liability for accidents at work, occupiers' liability for dangerous premises, manufacturers' liability for dangerous products, defences and vicarious liability. You'll develop your legal skills by reading and critically analysing cases and will apply your knowledge to complex, yet everyday, problem scenarios. You'll be encouraged to become critical and independent thinkers, and to communicate your ideas and awareness of the role of policy and the need for reform in the law of tort. In addition to its importance as an area of academic interest, tort is of practical significance to the intending practitioner, featuring heavily in the case scenarios of Legal Practice and Bar Professional Courses, as well as in everyday legal practice.

- Public law
You'll study the fundamental laws, practices and principles of Public law which define and influence the relationship between the individual and the state as characterised by various governmental institutions in the UK. Detailed consideration is given to the fundamental mechanisms by which human rights are protected and government is subject to legal and political accountability. Various skills are developed including those of analysis, critical evaluation and problem solving.

- Land law
Land law is a study of relationships. You'll study the relationship between the land and the rights which can exist in or over it, the relationship between the various persons who own an estate or interest over the land or want to defeat the competing interests in or over the land. You'll look at the rights and duties of each party to that relationship, how these relationships co-exit and what happens when the relationships come into conflict. Land Law governs the relative priorities enjoyed by two or more interests concerning the same piece of land. Land Law creates clear rules and formalities as to how the owner of an interest in land can acquire, transfer or extinguish that interest in land. You'll study the interests over land which Land Law is prepared to recognise and how these interests must be protected to ensure enforceability against third parties.

- Criminal law
This module aims to develop your ability to analyse and critically evaluate problems in Criminal Law so that you become independent and reflective legal practitioners able to contribute to public debate on legal issues. The main areas taught are: murder, manslaughter, non-fatal offences against the person including sexual offences and a variety of property offences including theft and fraud, accomplice liability and inchoate offences. You'll have additional support by way of on-line quizzes and narrated summaries.

- Equity and trusts
Principles of Equity are vital in the administration of justice. The 'trust' is a legal doctrine developed from those principles of equity which is fundamental to the commercial, business and employment worlds (pensions) and to individuals in the gifting of their property (personal trusts; wills).

- Project module
The project module satisfies the requirement of the academic stage of legal education that one other area of legal study must be successfully undertaken in addition to the seven modules which constitute the "Foundations of Legal Knowledge." It comprises the completion of a 4000 word extended essay, under the supervision of a member of the academic staff, based on the analysis of legal literature which takes differing interpretations over an issue related to law or its underlying theories. Its aim is to foster the development of the key elements of legal reasoning and legal method, research methods used in the conduct of autonomous research in law or law related topics as well as the development of skills in relation to the review and evaluation of journal articles, advanced texts and other secondary legal material.
Dissertation for the award of LLM

- Dissertation (LLM only)
This is an optional module as it is not required to complete the academic stage of legal education and so is not required to obtain the postgraduate diploma in legal studies and the common professional examination. Its successful completion is required to obtain the LLM. A prerequisite to undertake this module is the successful completion and award of the postgraduate diploma in legal studies and the common professional examination. It comprises the completion of a 15,000 word Master's level dissertation under the supervision of an appropriate academic member of staff. It requires the student to independently conceive, plan and execute an appropriate piece of research based on firm academic and theoretical foundations. The module builds upon the research skills already acquired in the successful completion of the postgraduate diploma in legal studies and common professional examination.

Assessment

Most modules are assessed by exams, exams plus coursework or presentations.

Award
X8 modules = PgDip + CPE
X8 modules and dissertation = LLM

Employability

- Solicitor or Barrister
This course can lead to one of many careers in law from a professional qualification as solicitor or barrister to a wide variety of careers in both public and private sectors.

While our graduates may go on to join professional courses leading to qualification as a solicitor or barrister, the Diploma is also useful for numerous jobs that value skills in analysis, clear communication, efficient organisation and reasoned persuasion.

- BSB and SRA
This course is fully recognised by the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority and constitutes completion of the Academic Stage of Training for the purposes of further study on either the Legal Practice Course (for intending solicitors) or the Bar Professional Training Course for intending barristers (with additional entry requirements including an aptitude test and English language proficiency).

LLM Progression

Unlike a Graduate Diploma in Law our PgDip Legal Studies plus CPE is a postgraduate level qualification. After successfully completing the course you'll accumulate sufficient postgraduate credits to be eligible to submit for the further award of LLM by dissertation.

The LLM is an optional qualification additional to your Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Studies. To obtain the LLM you must successfully complete a supervised 15,000 word dissertation for which preparation has already been undertaken by your successful completion of the project module forming part of the programme leading to the PgDip Legal Studies plus CPE. The Masters dissertation is usually submitted in the semester following completion of the PgDip Legal Studies plus CPE. You'll not be required to attend classes when researching and writing your dissertation and you'll therefore be able to enrol on the Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course in the September following the successful completion of the PgDip in Legal Studies.

LSBU Employability Services

LSBU is committed to supporting you develop your employability and succeed in getting a job after you have graduated. Your qualification will certainly help, but in a competitive market you also need to work on your employability, and on your career search.

Teaching and learning

Classes consist of a mixture of lectures and smaller group meetings where exam technique and problem solving approaches are practiced. The course is well supported by online materials and search resources, which can be accessed off-campus.

You'll have free access to OUP Law TROVE to access books for all foundation subjects.
