Course description This pathway is suited to students who want to take full advantage of the School's impressively wide range of course units on offer in any year can choose to take the course without any particular specialisation. Students are therefore afforded the opportunity to decide which aspects of the law will have the most relevance to their own future professional or academic career, and to choose accordingly the subjects that will make up their course of study. This offers students the most flexible way to pursue their course of advanced legal study, and will suit those who would like to maintain a broad, multi-directional profile. The course's compulsory research element (see Module Details) will allow students to develop their research skills and deepen their understanding on specific areas within their own choice of subjects.
Coursework and assessment Course units are usually assessed by either one unseen written examination, or one coursework essay, or a combination of these two methods of assessment. Students must also submit two research papers for the LL.M degree (one research paper submitted in April, and one submitted in September). Course unit details The LL.M course will typically offer around 30 different course units in any one year, and will always reflect a wide range of subjects across the legal spectrum. There will usually be course units offered on such diverse topics as international trade and corporate law, financial services regulation, European law, international economic law, intellectual property law, human rights law, corporate governance, and law and finance in emerging markets. Course units are of the value of 15 or 30 credits. Students have to select course units to a total of 120 credits, and so must choose a minimum of four course units or may be able to choose a maximum of eight course units to make up their course of study. The course has a compulsory research component, in which students have the option of choosing either to submit two research papers of 7,000-8,000 words each (and each of the value of 30 credits) or writing a 14,000 to 15,000 words dissertation (60 credits).
