  • Course description
    The general degree of LLM is suitable for students seeking a wide range of choice among a number of advanced courses, without narrowly focusing their studies in one area of law. Students must take three taught courses and complete a dissertation. Unless demand is excessive, you may take any of the courses available on the LLM in Commercial Law, the LLM in European Law, the LLM in Innovation, Technology and the Law, the LLM in International Law, the two research-training courses attached to the LLM in Legal Research, or two of the options available on the MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice.

    Learning Outcomes

    By the end of this programme, students should have acquired a more sophisticated understanding of their chosen subjects,including the diverse functions of law in contemporary society, differing approaches to the subject and a greater familiarity with research materials and methods.

    How You Will Be Taught

    Courses will be taught by seminar. Students are expected to prepare in advance by reading the required materials and by reflecting on the issues to be discussed. For the dissertation, students will be allocated a supervisor, who will provide guidance and support. The purpose of the dissertation, however, is to allow students independently to design and conduct a piece of research and analysis.

    The LLM degree comprises 180 credits. Students must complete 120 credits of taught courses (the dissertation accounts for 60 programme credits). LLM in Law students must take a minimum of 80 credits from Table A and/or Table B (in other words, a maximum of 40 credits may be taken from Table C i.e. MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice courses).
