Study your LLM online and enhance your legal skills in a specialised practice area

Whether you are a law graduate or qualified lawyer, a Master of Laws (LLM) is an excellent way to develop in-depth knowledge and specialist skills you need to make you stand out in a competitive job market.

In response to the changing legal landscape, we have designed two online Master of Laws programmes:

‌•Online LLM in Legal Practice (Conflict Resolution)

The course will deliver a Masters-level insight into different aspects of the conflict resolution process, combining taught modules on dispute resolution, research methods and related commercial topics with a dissertation on an aspect of conflict resolution of the student's own choice.

‌•Online LLM in Legal Practice (Intellectual Property)

The course will deliver a Masters- level insight into different aspects of intellectual property law, combining taught modules on intellectual property, research methods, and related commercial topics with a dissertation on an aspect of intellectual property law and practice of the student's own choice

Each programme will deliver a Masters-level insight into the different aspects of your chosen specialist area, combining online modules, research methods and related commercial topics. By studying one of our LLM, you will be able to demonstrate your expert specialist knowledge to potential employers through your own dissertation on a specific area of current legal practice.

Current LLM students

The current LLM in International Legal Practice (i-LLM) is still available to book for students who have already started the programme.

If you are a continuing student, please go to “All LLM students” on ELITE to find the booking form, and contact the i-LLM management team if you have any queries.

It is no longer possible to book on to the current i-LLM if you have not yet started this programme.

Please note that if you have started our current i-LLM programme, due to differences in credits and the validation of the awards, you will not be able to book any of the modules from the new LLMs. However, all of the law subject areas covered by the modules in the new LLMs are also covered on the i-LLM.

Why study an LLM?

‌•Broaden your career horizons with a valuable Masters qualification in the specialist fields of conflict resolution or intellectual property
‌•Learn professional skills to make you stand out to potential employers
‌•Gain an up-to-date knowledge of law and practice in this area and the impact of those developments on commercial and legal practice
‌•Online supervision delivered by professionally qualified faculty of legal experts
‌•One-to-one tutor support and feedback on your work from a fully-qualified lawyer
‌•Develop a portfolio demonstrating the law in practice
‌•Study online, giving you the flexibility to fit your studies around other commitments, such as work or family

What core skills will I learn on the course?

Study one of our LLMs and you will gain experience in:

‌•drafting of professional-standard legal and commercial documentation
‌•conducting legal research
‌•legal writing and presenting of research findings
‌•research and reflection on current developments within the law
‌•analysis of the law and application to a range of commercial problems to determine client- focused solutions
‌•development of a portfolio to demonstrate the law in practice

The course will prepare you to advise on a range of scenarios in your chosen field of study:

‌•LLM in Legal Practice (Conflict Resolution): drafting arbitration agreements, the role of Alternative Dispute Resolution and choice of forum in resolving conflict, looking particularly at the resolution of commercial disputes in the international commercial arena

‌•LLM in Legal Practice (Intellectual Property): distinguishing different types of right, registration of rights and enforcement of infringement of rights, looking particularly at issues of intellectual property rights protection and infringement in the international context

What future opportunities will the LLM offer me?

Whether you’re a recent graduate or already work in the conflict resolution or intellectual property sector, this course will assist law graduates in gaining employment in a legal or commercial capacity in your chosen field. If you’re already working within the sector, it can also help you progress into a more senior role.

Complete in up to five years - via supported online learning

You can study either of our LLMs over a period of up to five years: no attendance is required at our centres.

Learning and teaching

Our programmes are modular, consisting of self-contained units, taught and assessed on a semester basis. As you progress through each semester and successfully pass the examinations, you will receive credit for the units, thus providing you with a clear indication of your academic progress.

The majority of the content of the programme is delivered online to allow you to engage in flexible study alongside your clinical practice. To complement the online teaching there is a face-to-face induction event at the University and residential teaching weeks in the first and second years of the programme. Reflective, practice-based elements are provided through professional experiential learning and online virtual workshops.

Methods of assessment

You will be assessed through written assignments and case studies, a portfolio of clinical experience, the OSCE Examination and a Dissertation. Each unit is assessed individually.

Assignments are delivered online and must also be submitted online. The formative assessment includes moderated online discussions, self-assessment questions and online multiple choice tests.

Summative assessment will vary between units but will typically include some of the following:

Compilation of portfolio of evidence [SEM in Practice]
OSCE examination [SEM in Practice]
Maintaining a reflective practitioner portfolio [SEM in Practice]
Essays
Case studies
Short answer questions
Recorded consultations

- Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL):
If you have a previous qualification, or undertaken postgraduate units from another institution, you may be eligible to transfer credit for this prior learning.

Depending on the programme of study, you can gain APL for up to 50% of the total credits required (this credit must have been obtained within the previous five years).

- Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL)
You may also apply for APEL by submitting a portfolio of evidence, demonstrating that you have successfully achieved the learning outcomes for the specific unit(s) you seek exemption from.

We recommend you discuss this with the Director of Studies first to ensure this is suitable, as creating your portfolio can be very time consuming.

We will not permit exemptions of fractional units, and so the minimum threshold for the applications of APEL procedures will be a single, free standing unit (including three credit units). The maximum threshold for exemption will normally be 50% of the total credits required for a programme of study, for example, a 45-credit exemption towards a 90-credit Masters degree.

About the department

The School for Health was established within the University of Bath in 2003, to centralise the high profile research and teaching in the health-related disciplines already taking place throughout the university, so creating a single entity through which links with the health sector at national and international level can be channelled, co-ordinated and developed.

In 2010 the School joined the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences and became the Department for Health, providing excellent opportunities for academic teaching and research collaborations with other departments, such as Psychology and Social & Policy Sciences. The Department's postgraduate teaching and research programmes now form part of the Faculty's new Graduate School, also launched in 2010, providing postgraduate students with dedicated support and a strong community in which to base their studies - whether on campus or by distance learning.

In keeping with government initiatives surrounding population health and more general public concerns, the Department divides its activities between two main pillars: Healthcare and Population Health – one focuses on the NHS, healthcare and health services research and the other focuses on population health, healthy living, sport & physical activity and tobacco control; each of these groups, in turn, contain both teaching programmes and research activities. Furthermore, there is a bridging spine between both pillars and which houses the Professional Doctorate in Health, Research in Health Practice and the administrative, finance, learning & teaching development, marketing and support activities of the Department.

The Department’s aims are:

- To develop a research portfolio that is both of the highest academic standard and has applications in the real world
- To build on external links with the public services and other bodies concerned with health and society
- To innovate design and delivery of healthcare services
- To change corporate approaches to healthy organisations
- To support government reform of health and social care provision
- To identify and facilitate opportunities for academic collaboration and new developments.

The Department's postgraduate taught programmes combine academic excellence with flexible and innovative design and delivery; our postgraduate portfolio is distinguished by the provision of a number of Professional Masters and a Professional Doctorate programme designed to be studied part-time by learners working in a wide range of healthcare roles from all around the world. All our postgraduate courses are taught online and this has proved to be one of our unique selling points, with students able to continue within their practice area or working environment whilst gaining a further qualification.

The Department is renowned for its exemplary attention to educational design, integrating knowledge with research evidence and resulting in programmes which are highly relevant to contemporary practice; in addition, the Department boasts some of the most innovative and successful approaches to online and part-time education, recognised through a number of awards.

At all levels, learning and teaching in the Department provides a strong focus on high quality education for real world situations and produces graduates with skills and knowledge relevant to professional roles and in high demand from employers.

Teaching programmes on offer within the Department include:

- Sport & Exercise Medicine, the world renowned flexible masters programme exclusively for doctors
- Sports Physiotherapy, a specialist programme designed by physiotherapists for physiotherapists
- Research in Health Practice, a programme launched in 2008 aimed at health and social care professionals interested in conducting their own research
- The innovative Professional Doctorate in Health which focuses on both Population Health and Healthcare within the Department, providing a doctoral level programme to develop expert practitioners and researchers in practice.

The Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies offers master’s degrees comprised of elements from other RRU programs, enabling us to provide an education shaped by your unique aspirations. Read more
The Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies offers master’s degrees comprised of elements from other RRU programs, enabling us to provide an education shaped by your unique aspirations. Students benefit greatly from an individualized education that offers programs pursuant to their unique interests and schedules, while employers are attracted to candidates capable of meeting the specific demands of the professional world. That’s how everyone wins. That’s why Royal Roads graduate students are always in demand.

Our System

This graduate degree program is offered in 2 formats: online or a blended delivery that combines online coursework with one on-campus residency. And since we’re committed to providing individualized education, all of our students work closely with our program head to develop individual academic plans tailored to their specific needs. Drawing from two or more areas of study, this unique system enables Royal Roads graduate students to pursue an interdisciplinary course of study that combines personal passion and professional interest.

*This is not an independent studies or cohort model program. Courses are not self-paced and their start and end dates can vary.

Our Students

Royal Roads University draws more than just master’s students seeking an active role in the design of their educational experience. It also attracts driven, focused individuals who want more from their careers and who share a common desire to apply their education meaningfully throughout their organizations and communities. Most of our graduate students are already working professionals. That’s why we’re committed to providing a program that integrates professional experience with a practical education.

Commitment

Requiring 2 to 2.5 years of study, this degree program provides flexible scheduling options that combine online MA degree learning with one optional short term on-campus residency.

*Each online course can require up to 20 hours of study per week. Working professionals are encouraged to take this into consideration when developing a program of study in the MA in Interdisciplinary Studies program.

Delivery Model

This unique program allows each student to work directly with faculty to create an individualized schedule of study that draws together courses of personal and professional interest from other masters and graduate certificate programs at Royal Roads University. Students select no more than 50 per cent of their courses from any one program to assure interdisciplinary breadth of study. Individuals may do one on-campus residency in another masters program, or they may complete their degree completely online.

Online Courses
Online courses are not independent studies courses; they have deadlines for assignments and, more importantly, require posting deadlines to foster the fruitful exchange of ideas that make virtual communities thrive. In building your schedule of study, working professionals should consider taking no more than one online course at a time as each course can require up to 20 hours of work per week.

On-Campus Residencies
Students who elect to do a residency work on two or three courses simultaneously in a blended model of delivery. Residencies begin with a pre-residency online, followed by two to three weeks of intensive on-campus coursework and subsequently, several weeks of post-residency work. While the MA in Interdisciplinary Studies program recommends a residency in another masters program during the course of studies, residency options demand unimpeded time on-campus.

The MA in Interdisciplinary Studies program is driven by a student’s interdisciplinary research and career interests. A prospective student’s application needs to provide a rationale for the proposed combination of courses and academic fields of study.

Whereas most graduate interdisciplinary degrees draw from traditional, single disciplines (e.g., sociology, psychology, ecology, etc.), Royal Roads’ MA in Interdisciplinary Studies program offers a unique take on interdisciplinarity. This program draws not from single disciplines but from multidisciplinary academic program areas (e.g., humanitarian studies, environmental education and communication, leadership, etc.); in addition, the program focuses on applied research instrumental to working professionals’ career goals.

Individualized Schedule of Study

There are three paths through the MA in Interdisciplinary Studies degree:
Coursework - A student completes 36 credit hours of on campus or online courses
-6 credits in two required courses in interdisciplinary theory and methods
-30 credits accumulated by completing courses in MA or graduate certificate programs

Major Project - A student completes 36 credit hours of on campus or online courses
-6 credits in two required courses in interdisciplinary theory and methods
-18 credits accumulated by completing courses in MA or graduate certificate programs
-12 credits dedicated to a major project usually aligned with a student’s professional field

Thesis - A student completes 36 credit hours of on campus or online courses
-6 credits of required courses in interdisciplinary theory and methods
-18 credits accumulated by completing courses in MA or graduate certificate programs
-12 credits dedicated to a master’s thesis

Where needed, a student may take advantage of a directed study course to further familiarity with scholarship in a particular area of study.

Prospective students must contact the College of Interdisciplinary Studies to discuss development of their unique program schedules.

Online Master

The online master specialisation is designed for part-time study (approx. 20 hrs/week) to combine work and study or in the context of Life-Long-Learning. A course-programme of 2 years will be followed by a tailor-made internship and Master thesis. During the courses, you will closely collaborate with lecturers, tutors and fellow distance learning students on a virtual learning platform. The course programme includes two short stays of two weeks, each in Wageningen, for essential practicals that relate to the theory. There may be options to organise the academic internship and Master thesis in your own professional context, either parttime or full-time.

Programme summary

Plant Breeding plays an important role in the development of plant varieties for food, feed and industrial uses. New varieties have to meet current demands regarding yield, disease resistance, quality characteristics, salt or drought tolerance and suitability for sustainable plant production systems. Plant Breeding involves a variety of aspects, ranging from the molecular level to the population level and requires knowledge of the physiology, ecology and genetics of cultivated plants. The use of various molecular techniques contributes enormously to the rapid identification of genes for natural resistance and is essential for accelerating the selection process by marker-assisted breeding.

Your future career

Graduates of the Master Plant Sciences have excellent career prospects and most of them receive job offers before graduation. They are university-trained professionals who are able to contribute to the sustainable development of plant production at various integration levels based on their knowledge of fundamental and applied plant sciences and their interdisciplinary approach. Graduates with a research focus are employed at universities, research institutes and plant breeding or agribusiness companies. Other job opportunities are in management, policy, consultancy and communication in agribusiness and (non-) governmental organisations.

Student Timo Petter.
After 10 years of practical experience in Allium breeding, Timo subscribed to follow courses of the master Plant Breeding and Genetic Resources. His job at Bejo Zaden brought him to many countries where the breeding company has her trial fields, breeding stations and sales representatives. But as a crop research manager he started to feel the need to improve his knowledge of the theoretical side of his profession: “Although I have not finished my masters yet, I use the knowledge that I have gained from the various courses every day! For a plant breeder, I believe that this master is the best educational programme available in the Netherlands.”
