The course is suitable for a wide range of recent home, EU and overseas law and non-law graduates as well as professional returners to higher education. The course will suit those who wish to pursue a career in international business or legal practice.

Programme details

The course is delivered with a strongly contextual business bias and students benefit from the networking and employment prospects offered by a large and dynamic Business School

At the final stage of study (Business Innovation Project) students will be able to choose whether to pursue a purely law- based focus or an interdisciplinary law and management focus.

Tutorials are a chance to reflect on lecture materials and benefit from discussion and group work.

• individual or group work
• research based assignments
• presentations
• seen or unseen examinations
• closed or open-book examinations

Career potential

Both in the UK and overseas the internationally focussed LLM is a ‘gold standard’ qualification for entry into the legal profession, as the focus of specialisation has increasingly shifted to international legal practice.

In the corporate business world, the LLM carries a similar cachet to the Executive MBA, while offering greater specialism in its content.

In many European jurisdictions, the LLM is a compulsory prerequisite for entry into the legal profession.
