This course draws on the academic networks and events facilitated and organised by the Forum for Legal and Historical Research at Reading.
The course is delivered through a combination of skills-focused training, guided research and writing. With its emphasis upon independent research the course is particularly suited to those considering legal practice, or who wish to pursue a PhD in history, law or related areas. Pursued as a part-time course, it would also be an asset to researchers and practitioners who would like to develop their knowledge and skills in new directions while undertaking structured independent research.

Graduates from our LLM course have gone on to work for various national and international law firms, as lawyers and as in-house legal counsel for large multinational companies in the UK and abroad, as well as international organisations and NGOs. A good proportion of our recent graduates are working with the European Union, the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the International Police (INTERPOL), amongst others. A postgraduate law degree will open many doors not only in specialised areas of employment, such as law firms, European and intergovernmental and nongovernmental organisations, but also in academia (with further postgraduate study), the media (journalism and broadcasting), the civil service, and other branches of public service.
You are normally required to have a good undergraduate Honours degree (or equivalent from a university outside the UK). If you have other qualifications and a number of years' relevant work experience then you also be eligible to apply.
