The programme reflects the rapid evolution of European law and governance and its unique impact upon the domestic legal orders.
The European LLM programme provides an opportunity to study core European law subjects at an advanced level, and deepens knowledge of that law through more specialised courses.
First semester courses adopt a broader approach to the various fields of EU law, while greater specialisation comes in the second semester.
The programme offers a wide range of subjects across legal fields from a 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 EU Competition Law EU Constitutional Law EU Climate Change and Energy Law EU Fundamental Rights Law European Labour Law Human Rights Law in Europe International and European Media Law The Economics, Governance and Regulation of the Eurozone
You will also complete a 10,000 word dissertation worth 60 credits.
By the end of this programme, students should have acquired a sophisticated understanding of the European Union's legal system and its law-making processes, and substantive knowledge of their chosen policy/course strands.
They will have explored differing approaches to the subject and developed a greater familiarity with research materials and methods.
