Course summary

The modern world is defined by its global nature; no individual or country is left untouched by global interactions or implications.

This is not just in relation to economic processes, but also critical transnational issues, such as immigration, terrorism, environmental damage and cyber security. Law is increasingly called upon to respond to these challenges in innovative and nuanced ways.

This LLM draws on Birmingham Law School’s strength of research in the areas of international law, comparative law and global legal theory allowing you to develop a multifaceted understanding of how the international system works, but also its key modern challenges and the way law and regulation address them.

Our graduates move onto a diverse range of careers, with many going on to work in top law schools and law firms. Some examples of where our recent graduates have gone on to work include: Linklaters LLP, 5 Pump Court Chambers, Bar Pro Bono Unit and Squire Patton Boggs. A number of our postgraduate students go directly from Birmingham to complete the Legal Practice Course or the Bar Professional Training Course.

The Careers Network

The Careers Network organises regular events including presentations by top law firms and the annual Law Fair. It also runs workshops to help students prepare effective applications and to prepare for their next move. Its events on non-law careers, including journalism, marketing and working with charities, can be of interest to law students.
