Course summary

Overview

For those looking to develop a career in the competitive world of government, NGOs, international consultancies or think tanks – as well as in the legal profession – an LLM is an important asset.

Why study LLM/PGDip/PGCert Law (General) at Middlesex University?

In light of COVID-19 and the need to prioritise a safe, academic community, we will offer a blended learning model that will involve online teaching and learning delivered by our expert academics, as well as opportunities for face to face teaching on campus each week. All such decisions will be made in line with Government advice.

This degree is designed to deepen and broaden your knowledge of law as an academic subject by providing students with a systematic understanding of legal processes, methods and concepts; of the social and political context in which legal processes take place; and of appropriate theoretical conceptions of law.

By maximising your academic potential and refining your problem-solving skills in a transnational context you will enhance your professional development and horizons. The research and writing skills you gain will be transferable to a variety of professional sectors, including the legal profession, policy-making, corporate sector, governmental bodies or academia.

The School of Law is comprised of world-renowned scholars from across the world specialising in areas such as human rights, commercial law, International and European law, who are expert in communicating the latest thinking about complex legal questions, combining instruction in core topics with the fruits of their current research.

You will also benefit from their extensive networks of contacts, which enable the School to offer placement opportunities to eligible students with major international organisations including the United Nations.

Careers

How can the LLM/PGDip/PGCert Law (General) support your career?

The LLM is a highly marketable qualification and previous graduates of the programme have gone on to work for legal departments of public and private sector organisations, multinational companies, international organisations, governmental departments and within the judiciary. Many have continued their higher education studies via a PhD.

As well as access to the University's Employability Service students are offered specialist advice by the Programme Leader and other contributors to the programme, including guidance on how to enter and pass recruitment processes for national and international organisations. Students have access to the support services offered by the Clinical Legal Education programme and are invited to attend career-focused workshops, skills sessions and events.

Our team of world renowned lecturers will provide the latest thinking and practice on legal issues. Our students benefit from their considerable network of contacts and connections within their sectors, notably for internship opportunities within international and domestic organisations, such as the United Nations, our on-campus litigation centre, the European Human Rights Advocacy Centre (EHRAC), the Legal Advice Centre, and a range of local companies providing professional legal services.

Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.
