Comparative and European Private Law (LLM)


Course Description

Programme description

This programme offers a qualification that combines considerable academic interest with professional utility.

It provides a comparative insight into both the modern development of the key areas of private law, and also the dynamics of European harmonisation initiatives.

It is particularly suited to those who have studied a range of private law subjects at undergraduate level, although it is also open to those whose undergraduate law degree has combined other specialisations.

Programme structure

The programme offers a wide range of subjects that deal with various aspects of private law from a comparative European perspective, enabling you to tailor the LLM to meet your specific interests.

The programme structure for 2017/18 is currently being finalised. You will take a total of 120 credits in taught courses, 60 in each semester, which may include the following:

Contract Law in Europe
Comparative Property Law
Delict and Tort
Comparative and International Trust Law
Family Law in Comparative Perspectives
International Private Law: Jurisdiction and Enforcement of Judgements

You will also complete a dissertation of not more than 10,000 words (worth 60 credits).

Learning outcomes

This programme is designed to equip students with recognised Masters-level training in European Private Law.

You will receive advanced legal training enabling you to identify and interpret problems relating to private law using tools of comparative analysis.

As well as providing training in legal research, you will gain an understanding of the main challenges for modern comparative law, including issues of European harmonisation. The programme will also enable students to progress to the PhD should they so wish.
