The University of Nottingham is widely recognised as a centre of excellence in European law. The LLM in European Law attracts students from all over the world with an interest in the governance of Europe and the role of its institutions in the global legal order. We offer a broad perspective that encompasses both the law of the supranational European Union and the intergovernmental Council of Europe, including the European Convention on Human Rights.
The School provides a welcoming environment – educational, social and cultural – for the study of European law. Students enjoy participating in seminars led by leading scholars drawn from the School and its specialist centres, including the Human Rights Law Centre, the Centre for Environmental Law and the Public Procurement Research Group. We have a thriving European Law Society that organises seminars and events open to all. Recent visitors include Advocate General Eleanor Sharpston of the European Court of Justice and Professor Joseph Weiler of New York University.
The Programme Director of the LLM is Professor Jeffrey Kenner, who is Chair of European Law and convenor of a popular module on International Relations Law of the EU. Professor Niamh Moloney, the Chair of Capital Markets Law, has introduced a new module on EU Financial Services Law. We also have recruited new colleagues with expertise in European Law, including Dr Emilie Cloatre, Dr Aris Georgopoulos, Dr Annamaria La Chimia and Dr Ping Wang. The arrival of new colleagues enables us to plan to introduce more options in the future. It also means that we will be able to expand our highly regarded PhD and MPhil programmes.
European Law is an area of established expertise and activity at Nottingham. It has a bright and exciting future of which we warmly hope you will be a part.

Offering a wide and diverse range of over 50 options, the programme now attracts some 150 to 180 candidates each year, from more than 50 countries, confirming its status as one of the leading and most exciting LLM programmes available.
