Description

Our LLM programme is designed for both recent law graduates and established professionals. It will allow you to deepen and broaden your knowledge of law as an academic subject and will help your professional development by enhancing your problem-solving skills in a transnational context. It is designed to maximise your intellectual potential, as well as keeping you grounded by drawing on the real world experiences of staff and other practitioners.

Under the close guidance of our expert tutors, we will equip you with the legal knowledge and expertise to match your career ambitions. You will gain an internationally recognised qualification that is highly desirable in today’s competitive legal profession.

This programme requires you to take 180 credits. If you take the course part-time over two years we recommend you to take 80 credits of taught modules in year 1 and 40-60 credits of taught modules plus a writing project in year 2.

Course format and assessment

Teaching on the LLM programme is delivered through a combination of lectures and seminars. In modules with smaller numbers of students, there are usually two hours of seminar-style teaching per week. In larger courses (i.e. with more than 40 students enrolled), there will typically be a combination of a two-hour lecture and a number of additional seminars. This means that usually students will have 6 to 10 contact hours a week.

Assessment

The majority of modules are assessed by a two or three-hour exam. Alternatively, some modules are assessed through coursework. In addition to coursework and exams, a percentage of your final mark may be based on, for example, presentations, reaction papers or other assignments.
