About the LLM

The LLM at LSE is a leading programme delivered at one of the world's best law schools and the UK’s number one legal research institution. It is unmatched in the international, comparative and interdisciplinary approaches and courses that it offers. Courses are offered in a broad range of fields including arbitration, human rights, international law, and corporate, commercial and financial law.

Our approach to the teaching of law combines views and experiences from different disciplinary traditions and jurisdictions. This ensures that what you learn at LSE Law is relevant to legal study and practice in any jurisdiction. Students may obtain approval to take one or in exceptional circumstances two complementary subjects from another master's degree at LSE in place of the equivalent number of law subjects. For example, international lawyers may choose to take a course in international relations; criminologists may take a course in sociology; constitutional lawyers may take a course in political theory; and company lawyers may take a course in financial reporting.

The programme enjoys a uniquely cosmopolitan student body and plays a major role in the education of lawyers and law teachers from around the world.

Graduate destinations

The LLM programme provides excellent prospects for graduates seeking to start their career with a Training Contract in UK and international firms both in London and major commercial centres around the world, with in-house legal departments or government legal services. Some graduates go on to pursue a career at the Bar. Graduates with a legal qualification from their home jurisdictions and relevant experience join a variety of employers in legal and other sectors such as financial and management consulting. Others may continue their careers in national, regional and international courts or work in a legal capacity within an NGO or Multilateral Organisation. The LSE LLM also provides an excellent starting point for those wishing to pursue a PhD and or a career in academia. Recent employers who have hired graduates from this programme include Clifford Chance, Schoenherr, White & Case, Wolf Theiss, Diageo, Louis Vuitton, Australian Attorney General’s Office, 4 Kings Bench Walk Chambers, PWC and the Human Rights Commission.
