Course content

The LLM programme has been designed to give you the greatest flexibility to pursue advanced legal study in any area that you wish. You can follow any of the modules available in the year of study from the lists of the specialised LLM programmes, and complete a dissertation.

Overview

Our LLM Programme offers the knowledge and expertise to enable you to contribute more fully to your chosen profession through the development of intellectual competence and postgraduate skills. 

The programme has been designed to give you the greatest flexibility to pursue advanced legal study in any area.

Distinctive features

The LLM programme:

  • Provides you with a general appreciation of current issues in specific areas of law, both domestic and international.
  • Stimulates a critical approach to evaluation of current and proposed regulation and cultivates independent and original thought.
  • Enables you to undertake in-depth research and demonstrate advanced knowledge in specific areas of law.

The LLM programme is very flexible and offers a wide range of modules providing you with the ability to customise the programme to meet your own professional and/or employment needs or interests.

Learning and assessments

How will I be taught?

Study for an LLM is intensive and challenging and it is important that you take full advantage of the teaching that is provided in order to succeed. Attendance at classes and dissertation supervisions is compulsory and we will expect you to be well prepared. 

Our teaching is very flexible and your modules may be delivered through seminars or a combination of lectures and seminars. Other teaching methods include the online use of discussion boards, self-access study packs and formative quizzes and activities.

Modules may be diverse in content to cater for a high proportion of overseas students or students with previous qualifications other than in law. Modules are typically led by experienced staff actively engaged in research relevant to their subject area.

How will I be supported?

We have created a specially designed research and study skills module which is studied by all LLM students at the beginning of the programme. We also offer writing skills support for those whose first language is not English.

Your learning will be supported through e-learning; all modules are supported by Learning Central, a virtual learning environment that is available on and off campus through which you will access a wide range of materials for your modules.

You will receive dedicated pastoral support through our personal tutor scheme. We offer an extensive programme of careers lectures and workshops with an in-house Law Careers Consultant and a Pro-bono Scheme Co-ordinator. 

A designated Disability and Diversity Officer ensures that reasonable adjustments are made for students with disabilities. The University also has a range of services to support you, including the Careers Service, the Counselling Service, the Disability and Dyslexia Service, the Student Support Service and excellent libraries with specialist law librarians and resource centres.

Career prospects

A law degree doesn’t restrict you to a career within the legal profession and law graduates enter professions as diverse as finance, sales and marketing, digital communications and recruitment.

We are committed to extending extracurricular opportunities to you, helping to enhance your CVs in a competitive graduate job market. We work in partnership with lawyers, charities and voluntary organisations to give you the opportunity to practise and extend your skills and we run several Pro Bono schemes and provide advice to members of the community on different legal issues.

If you successfully complete the LLM programme you may have the opportunity to continue your legal study through the School’s PhD programme or through the Centre for Professional Legal Studies professional programmes (the Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course).
