Bangor University is a major international research centre in relation to the operation of national and European law and policies on public procurement law. Building on this extensive experience, we offer a full-time LLM specialising in Public Procurement Law and Strategy.

The main educational aims of the programme include:

  • To provide candidates with postgraduate level knowledge and skills in the area of national (UK and Irish), European and International (WTO, World Bank and UNCITRAL) Public Procurement Law and Strategy.
  • To build up specialist legal skills and knowledge to equip candidates to operate in the interface between legal principles that apply in the Public Procurement environment and the strategic objectives of interests to organisations in the public and private sectors.
  • To provide a flexible programme enabling candidates to develop national, European and international perspectives on Public Procurement law issues and practice, which will open up a whole new area of opportunity for graduates.

A strategic element of the programme is the presentation of learning from the perspectives of both the public procurement function and private sector supplier organisations, to help advance understanding of the complex issues organisations involved in public sector tendering face, and to develop more creative legally compliant public procurement solutions.

This is achieved through carefully designed module options and collaborative teaching involving the use of academic and expert procurement law and strategy specialists.

Careers & Employability

This programme will be of interest to several categories of applicants.

First, those working in a procurement role in either the public or private sectors: it will provide the ideal platform for those who wish to accelerate their career progression.

Second, the course is also suitable for those not yet in full-time employment, but who have a desire to pursue a career in this area. The programme’s focus on procurement law and strategy will equip students with the portfolio of key skills required to occupy senior level positions within public and private sector procurement.

This programme enables candidates to develop their legal and procurement management expertise, and will provide a springboard for career progression in Public or Private Sector Procurement, or into public or private bodies, all of whom have procurement functions, which need to be serviced.

Candidates who are already working in industry will develop their expertise in order to advance their career prospects, and upgrade their level of skills.

The course is also suitable for those not yet in full-time employment, but who have a desire to pursue a career in this area. 

Previous graduates from our 1-year full-time LLM in Public Procurement Law & Strategy have found our programme to be particularly effective in enhancing employability.

Research/Links with Industry

The delivery programme is led by Bangor University’s internationally-recognised Institute for Competition and Procurement Studies, with its multi-disciplinary team of professors and senior academics. The course is further enriched by expert guest lecturers – a central feature of every module. Students will also benefit from the opportunity to network with, and learn from, procurement thought leaders and innovators who participate in Bangor University’s highly acclaimed annual Procurement Week conference, which features presentations, workshops and seminars by leading procurement professionals from around the world. Those not able to physically attend Procurement Week can participate over the web.
