Master of Laws

Course Description


The Master of Laws (LLM) is one of 22 LLM programmes of study at Queen Mary. It is designed to give you maximum flexibility in your choice of modules and dissertation topic. The programme allows you to follow a variety of interests (and take modules simply because you will enjoy them) or to select a range of modules designed with a specific career or personal aspiration in mind.

You can choose any combination taught-modules of 135 credits in total and your dissertation (45 credits) may be in any field of law. You may choose from the full range of available LLM modules that are taught within the School of Law.

If you apply for the Master of Laws your final degree certificate will show Master of Laws. If you would like your degree to show expertise in a specific area of law then you should apply for one of our specialised LLM programmes. If you choose one of our specialised programmes you will benefit from module selections that provide a complementary study programme, as well as joining a community of students with an interest in a similar field of law.

Your fellow students will come from the UK and more than 80 other countries, each able to draw on prior academic and in many cases professional experiences from different jurisdictions to enrich discussion and debate in class.


To specialise in this area, you must select 90 credits of modules from this list and do your compulsory dissertation in the field of Banking & Finance Law (45 credits). The additional 45 credits of taught modules can be in this area or can be unrelated and therefore selected from the full list of LLM available modules - see: http://www.law.qmul.ac.uk/postgraduate/courses/modules/llm/

Note: Not all of the modules will be available in any one year. Any modules not available in the forthcoming academic session will be marked as soon as this information is confirmed by teaching academics.
