The European Union has never been more topical; we offer units that explore the hotly contested legal issues surrounding the free movement of goods and people within Europe, and the creation and enforcement of standards (for example, in competition and environmental law).

We offer an exciting and stimulating set of postgraduate law programmes, each of which prepares you for a variety of careers. If you are interested in studying law beyond your undergraduate degree level and want to develop your analytical, research and legal writing skills, you will find Bristol’s LLM to be a challenging and rewarding experience. We have a large and vibrant international community and our LLM students benefit from small class sizes taught by world-renowned experts.

Our LLM programmes give you the opportunity to specialise in a particular area but you can also opt for a broader and more general set of unit choices. In all cases, you are encouraged to explore your chosen areas of law at a deeper level. You will have the chance to see how these legal fields operate in different contexts, considering the relevant issues theoretically and practically and from a range of perspectives.

For further information about the Law School, visit our Why Bristol Law School? web page, which includes short videos. Visit the Law School's Brexit web pages to explore our active involvement in and responses to the Brexit negotiations.

Programme structure

In the first part of the programme, you will choose four units from a list of European legal studies options, or three units from the list and a further unit from any of our other specialist LLM programmes, or two units from the list and two from the LLM in International Law. Assessment is by examination and/or essay.

In the spring term, you will choose a dissertation topic from the field of European legal studies for approval by the Law School. After passing part one of the programme, you start work on your dissertation for submission by September. You must pass both parts to obtain an LLM and may not proceed to part two until you have passed part one.

Visit our programme catalogue for full details of the structure and unit content for our LLM in European Legal Studies.

Careers

This programme will provide you with a strong foundation for a broad range of careers that involve an European law perspective. Graduates go on to act as solicitors, barristers, lawyers and researchers in international and European organisations, such as the United Nations or the European Commission. A number work for NGOs and other agencies. Some graduates go on to further study or research at the University of Bristol or other universities.
