An LLM is the prime management qualification for lawyers and managers wishing to strengthen their legal knowledge, and is widely considered the 'gold standard' for career development. We now offer the opportunity to complete an LLM through blended learning methods, including online learning resources that allow you to study no matter where you are in the world. Our flexible teaching methods allow you to earn while you learn, focusing on your busy work schedule whilst also building towards new advancements in your career.
This course is run in partnership with Robert Kennedy College and applications should be made directly at their website: https://college.ch/llm
Most of the course is delivered via OnlineCampus with intensive class discussion and collaboration. This will allow you to learn at your own pace from anywhere in the world through a state of the art course delivery system.
There will also be a mandatory one week residency at our London campus. This will complement your online studies by working with students from every continent, giving you a learning experience that will leave you with lifetime memories. It's a truly international experience that provides opportunities to network with fellow leaders from all over the world.
The LLM qualification can help career development in the legal sector (including for those practicing law in commercial and business fields) as well as the Business and Management industry, helping promotion to middle and senior management. To meet the constant evolution of global business law development, we offer the opportunity to gain the qualification in one year.
