The LLM at LSE is a leading programme delivered at one of the world's best law schools, ranked first overall in the UK in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. It is unmatched in the international, comparative and interdisciplinary approaches and courses that it offers. 

The LSE LLM offers the highest quality of teaching provided by leading international and UK academics. 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.

Courses are offered in a broad range of fields including arbitration, human rights, international law, corporate, commercial and financial law.

You can choose to pursue your LLM with a general focus or select a subject specialism. If you take the required minimum number of LLM courses (or more) that fall within one of the following specialist areas you can request that your chosen specialism is included on your final certificate upon graduation. Furthermore, with the relevant approval and subject to space on your desired course, you may be able to take up to a full unit course or two half-unit courses from another LSE department. This non-law course may be relevant to your field of specialism (if any), for example international lawyers may, with approval, take a course in international relations, though it will not contribute to gaining an LLM specialism.
