About the course

Research profile

The LLM by Research is an excellent opportunity to focus on a period of dedicated research and can be a bridge to doctoral study.

As a student on this programme, you will consolidate and build on the legal research and writing skills you acquired during previous legal studies, by planning and completing a dissertation of up to 30,000 words. You will work independently but under specialist academic supervision, within your chosen field of law.

The topic of your dissertation can be chosen from any of the School’s legal research fields in which we have supervisory expertise, including commercial law, criminal law and evidence, criminal justice, EU law, IP, media and technology law, international law, legal history and legal theory, medical law, private law, and public law.
