Course summary

Overview

The LLM in Law and Social Justice enables you to examine how the law facilitates (or may undermine) social justice at the local, national and international level. The interdisciplinary nature of the course allows you to benefit from the expertise of both the School of Law and School of Sociology and Social Policy.

You will have the opportunity to engage with core modules that explore the ways in which we define, access and attempt to enact justice. You will also investigate the range and magnitude of inequalities around disability, gender, race and class both domestically and globally, examining their implications for law, policy and practice. In addition to core modules, you will also have the opportunity to tailor your course with optional modules, exploring issues such as: disability; health, justice and embodiment; social care law; and the building of just and resilient communities.

Throughout the course you will develop advanced knowledge, and transferrable skills such as understanding and solving problems; analysing and communicating complex information and working independently and as part of a team, which will prepare you for a fruitful career in areas such as law, healthcare, social care, the third sector, activism, policy development and local government.

Learning and teaching

Teaching is through seminars and lectures in which a high level of student engagement and discussion is expected. You are encouraged to carry out significant advanced levels of independent legal research.

Assessment

Assessment is by a variety of methods but primarily involves written assignments. We assess the dissertation through your submission of a written piece of work of up to 15,000 words.

Career opportunities

This programme is particularly suited to those who wish to pursue a career that centres on or involves understanding and applying law and social justice including areas in public service, the private sector, the voluntary sector, or any other arena where success is built upon higher-level skills and advanced knowledge of social justice and law.
