Giving you the opportunity to extend your knowledge of the law and develop advanced legal research skills, the taught LL.M will give your future prospects a significant boost by adding an internationally recognised postgraduate legal qualification to your existing skills and experience.
You will develop an in-depth understanding of how and why the law is formed, how it is applied and its relationship with policy and policy-making processes at national, European and international levels.
The programme is designed to provide you with the flexibility to tailor your study to meet your own professional or academic goals. You specialise in a specific area of the law that interests you, whilst developing advanced critical, analytical and evaluative skills. Our LL.M students tend to come from a wide range of backgrounds with varied professional and personal experience, all with intellectual drive and a dedication to their chosen area of the law.
