Course summary

Overview

Our students play a key role in our success through direct participation in debates and the exchange of ideas among the academic community. Through studying this LLM you will see first-hand how European and EU law takes shape.

Course detail

European law and EU law, in particular, are now more relevant than ever. At King’s you will be studying for an LLM in European Law at one of the most exciting times in EU history. Our faculty is at the cutting-edge of current development while benefitting from a long- standing tradition of expertise in the field, which gives our students the most rounded view of European Law possible. At King’s you will not only be taught in a range of areas of EU law, you will also be part of an EU law community, built around the Centre of European Law, which was set up as far back as 1975. During your time here you will meet excellent teachers and fellow students but also European judges and Advocates General, EU officials, leading barristers, and many others with a keen interest in EU law. The King’s LLM in European Law is unrivalled. Our alumni have gone on to work for some of the most prestigious European institutions and legal firms. We are passionate about giving our students access to the best opportunities. We are passionate about Europe. And above all we are passionate about European law. This course allows you to deepen or to broaden your knowledge of law as an academic subject and assists your professional development by enhancing your problem-solving skills in a transnational context. Designed to maximise students’ intellectual potential, it also keeps you grounded by drawing on the real world experiences of staff and other practitioners. Aimed at recent law graduates (or graduates of joint degrees with a significant law content) as well as established legal professionals who may have graduated a number of years ago, the course is rigorous and demanding and requires serious commitment.

Teaching and assessment

In the first and second semester you study your selection of taught modules (half and full). These are in most cases assessed in the third semester (May/June) by written examination, or in some cases by the submission of an assessed essay. Dissertation or research essays must be submitted in September, after the May/June examinations.

Career prospects

In a competitive world we can give you the competitive edge to take your career to the next level. That’s why you’ll find our LLM programme is supplemented by opportunities to develop your skills and professional networks. The result is that students are presented with a wide range of employment destinations when they leave.
