  • Course description
    This degree programme is primarily research-based but also contains two taught components (Research Methods in Law and Foundations for Postgraduate Study and Research).

    Regular attendance on campus is required of LLM students to attend classes, present work-in-progress seminars and meet with their supervisors.

    LLM by Research is aimed at students completing a dissertation that addresses legal academic or doctrinal work (i.e. substantive or black letter law, or developing a socio-legal perspective).

    As a preliminary to applying for the LLM by Research, the student must submit an outline of the proposed research topic of approximately 500 to 1,000 words to the programme leader, who will consider whether the topic is viable for research at LLM level and falls within the area of expertise of members of staff in the Law Department.

    The student may be invited to expand on their chosen topic of research at an informal meeting prior to submitting a formal application.


        * Research Methods in Law
