Master of Laws (LLM)

Course Description

Gain a prestigious University of London LLM

by distance learning

The LLM (Master of Laws) is an internationally recognised postgraduate law degree, comparable to an MBA in business and management.

Valuable for both legal and non-legal professionals

A valuable qualification for both legal and non-legal professionals, the University of London International Programmes LLM, studied by distance learning, offers breadth and flexibility, enabling you to tailor your LLM degree to meet your personal and professional interests, without necessarily specialising in one area of law.

Large choice of modules & specialisations

This LLM by distance learning offers one of the widest choices of modules on the global market, including:

- Commercial and Corporate Law
- International Business Law
- Human Rights Law
- International Dispute Resolution
- Public International Law
- Maritime Law
- Banking and Finance Law

Access and choice

Access is a key principle - you do not need a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) to apply. If you do not have a degree, you can start on the Postgraduate Certificate in Laws and progress up.

Whether you're a practising lawyer, LLB graduate or non-legal professional, if you're keen to enhance your prospects with current or prospective employers, there is an option to suit you.

Gain valuable transferable skills

The LLM will help you to:

- develop a sound understanding of legal cultural context
- develop the skills to carry out effective legal research
- enhance your forensic legal skills such as analysis, critical evaluation, logical thinking and argument
- develop an advanced intellectual engagement with some of the most difficult legal problems.

(Student Profile)

Nisha Mohamed

I wanted to study law from a young age. My father had obtained his law degree from the University of London External System 22 years ago and suggested that I do the same. After completing my Bachelor of Law degree with Honours also with the University of London External System and my Postgraduate Certificate in Laws (PCLL) with the University of Hong Kong, I decided to train as a barrister, following in the footsteps of my mother who had practiced as a barrister in India many years ago.

I continued my academic pursuits with the distinguished and reputable institution by enrolling for my Master of Laws (LLM). My subjects were Insurance Law, Carriage of Goods By Sea, International and Comparative Arbitration and Company Law, which proved to be an immense help in my Law practice.

Naturally it was not a piece of cake and in my case this was doubly so as I had to continue a full time practice at the same time. It was admittedly a tough enterprise both mentally and physically. However, due to the structure and flexibility of the course, I was able to succeed in both areas. The course not only helped me to think independently but taught me that with self discipline, perseverance and determination, anything is possible.

I am indeed happy to say that I definitely made the right decision to take up Law with the University of London External System and my hard work has paid off as I was recently offered teaching positions at both the School of Professional and Continuing Education at the University of Hong Kong (HKUSPACE) and City University of Hong Kong. In addition to teaching, the Masters has opened other doors of opportunities for me, such as writing legal books for practitioners.
