Comments about European Law and Policy LLM - At the institution - Manchester - Greater Manchester
The aims of the LLM European Law and Policy are to enable you to develop an advanced level of knowledge and understanding of European law and social policy as it applies in a number of different fields. A more sophisticated appreciation of the new legal order of the European Union, and of Europe in a wider sense, is to be fostered. Specifically, the programme equips you with knowledge of the sources of European law and social policy in the different areas covered by each course. You will learn how European law is developed through national and supra-national mechanisms, including law-making institutions and the activities of interest groups. You are made aware of the relationship between policy and law in the emergent European legal order. Study of the application of European law and policy in the national legal order will enhance your understanding of the constitutional order of the European Union, the legal strategies adopted to achieve effective implementation of European law, and the impact of European law in the legal systems of the Member States. Where appropriate, you will be encouraged to analyse relevant provisions of European law from critical perspectives.The School of Law at The University of Manchester has a strong profile in teaching and research in the field of European law and policy. In 1998 the School was awarded a Jean Monnet Chair in European Law by the European Commission.
Entry requirements: A minimum upper second class honours degree, or the equivalent, in law.
