Course summary

Course Summary

Nottingham Law School provides an LLM (Masters in Law) award through distance learning to “top-up” professional legal qualifications or experience. The LLM International Legal Studies is available to individuals who have either undertaken and passed the UK Legal Practice Course (LPC), the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC), their precursors, equivalent professional certifications in non-UK jurisdictions, or the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme certification (QLTS). This course is designed to allow completion of the top-up element over a recommended one-year period, with an option to continue for a further year. This would allow students to undertake study immediately following the completion of their professional practice qualification (e.g. LPC or BPTC) and complete the course quickly, but also offers more flexible time frames for completing the self-study module while already in professional practice working full-time.

Careers and employability

We have a strong reputation for our Masters and professional courses and the study and successful completion of this course will provide an opportunity to enhance both your academic and professional profile. It will build on your abilities by developing skills in research, legal writing and critical analysis, thereby developing a high level of knowledge and critical insight into your area of specialism. The learning environment provided is supportive and structured. This Masters is therefore highly relevant to the development of a career in professional legal practice or related profession. The course can also assist you in seeking employment in the legal sector in the UK, or as an excellent grounding for an academic career around the world.
