The programme reflects the rapid evolution of European law and governance and its unique impact upon the domestic legal orders.
The European LLM programme provides an opportunity to study core European law subjects at an advanced level, and deepens knowledge of that law through more specialised courses.
First semester courses adopt a broader approach to the various fields of EU law, while greater specialisation comes in the second semester.
The programme offers a wide range of subjects across legal fields from a European perspective, enabling you to tailor the LLM to meet your specific interests.
The programme structure for 2016/17 will consist of 180 credits, comprising taught courses worth 120 credits and a 10,000 word dissertation worth 60 credits.
Each semester you will take 60 credits of core and option courses.
