The School of Law offers a number of Masters programmes that permit you to focus your studies on particular aspects of the law. However, by combining the module units from the Justice, European Law and International Law programmes, you may obtain a general LLM. If you do not have a particular preference for one of the three subject specialisations offered, enrolling on the general programme may be the more attractive and flexible option for you. By enrolling on the general programme, you will gain the opportunity to cover a broad range of legal subjects. The purpose of the programme is to provide you with opportunities to engage with, to understand and to evaluate key conceptual debates in law, to consider the role of law in its socio-legal and its political context, and to provide you with the opportunities to focus on key points of contention and debate within each of your chosen modules. As a general Law programme, you are given the flexibility to select four modules from any of those available on the specialist programmes (see module lists below). In addition, you will complete a dissertation in a topic of particular interest to you. Any topic within the broad range of the research specialisations of members of staff may be the subject matter for a dissertation on the general Law programme. Please see the School's research pages for details of the research interests.
