The Master’s Dissertation
By the end of the series of taught courses, students choose a dissertation topic relevant to the courses of the LL.M. programme. The topic is chosen by the student with input and advice from a faculty member, who acts as the supervisor, working closely with the student.
The dissertation is an individual 15,000-word paper of original scientific work, which upon completion is submitted for examination and approval by a three-member committee chaired by the student’s supervisor.
Courses are taught over weekends (twice a month on average). The duration of the programme is 14 months (master’s dissertation included).
In order to be awarded the LL.M. degree, students must complete a total of 90 credits.
This involves taking: Eight core courses (48 credits) Four elective courses (12 credits) Master’s Dissertation (30 credits).
