Course summary

Overview

Our LLM course is a respected academic qualification recognised throughout the world and across key legal disciplines. It focuses on our particular areas of expertise and offers a choice of nine specialist pathways or a general LLM qualification. We place particular emphasis on innovative and problem-solving teaching methods as well as comparative and international outlook.

Course detail

Our LLM course is designed for both recent law graduates and established professionals. It will allow you to deepen and broaden your knowledge of law as an academic subject and will help your professional development by enhancing your problem – solving skills in a transnational context. It is designed to maximise your intellectual potential, as well as keeping you grounded by drawing on the real world experiences of staff and other practitioners. You will also benefit from our vibrant intellectual community, student societies and social events, as well as our links with prestigious international law schools. You will choose to specialise in one of nine different pathways or choose your own combination of modules for a ‘General LLM’.

Teaching and assessment

Teaching on the LLM course is delivered through a combination of lectures and seminars. In modules with smaller numbers of students, there is usually two hours of seminar-style teaching a week. In larger courses (i.e. with more than 40 students enrolled) there will typically be a combination of a two- hour lecture and a number of additional seminars. This means that usually students will have 6 to 10 contact hours a week. The majority of modules are assessed by exam. Alternatively, some modules are assessed through coursework. In addition to coursework and exams, a percentage of your final mark may be based on, for example, presentations, reaction papers or other assignments.
