From September 2017, this delivery format will change. Students will continue to study a single module for a 6 week period. Face to face teaching will be delivered on campus for two half days each week. In addition, you will attend the taught element of the Business Innovation Programme each Wednesday afternoon during the 6 week blocks, with independent study completed in your own time through Blackboard.  Individual student timetables will be provided during induction week.

Teaching is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars and tutorials, using a wide range of learning activities.

ASSESSMENT

Each taught module is assessed by two pieces of work, each worth 50% of the overall course assessment.

Although each taught module has its own assessment styles, all assessments will be design to enable students to demonstrate their advanced knowledge and skill, and may include:

  • individual or group work
  • research based assignments
  • presentations
  • seen or unseen examinations
  • closed or open-book examinations

EMPLOYABILITY

Both in the UK and overseas the internationally focussed LLM is a ‘gold standard’ qualification for entry into the legal profession, as the focus of specialisation has increasingly shifted to international legal practice.

In the corporate business world, the LLM carries a similar cachet to the Executive MBA, while offering greater specialism in its content.

In many European jurisdictions, the LLM is a compulsory prerequisite for entry into the legal profession.
