LLM - Master of Laws
The SOAS LLM in Law, Development and Globalisation is a specialist programme that provides you with both a good grounding in the fundamentals of international law as well as opportunities to develop an expert niche offered by our diverse and unique range of development and globalisation modules.
Teaching and learning environment
The SOAS School of Law adopts an innovative and critical approach to teaching and learning which draws on the wider international community of academics, legal practitioners and NGOs both in London and internationally.
We pride ourselves on our diverse teaching culture and high level interactive classes, which includes: student-led research conferences, student blogs; meet-the-author book review sessions; film reviews; re-enactments of historic international legal events; international law mooting or pleading; and simulated peace negotiations.
In addition to your chosen modules you will join the International Law Master Class. This is a non-assessed course designed to build a research community and nourish your legal research and writing skills, your powers of critical thinking, and your international legal imagination.
You will also become a member of the Centre for the study of Colonialism, Empire and International (a hub for inter-disciplinary collaboration and research on international law) and join a vibrant research community of international legal scholars and a diverse community of students from all over the world.
This programme is ideal for LLB graduates or legal professionals with an interest in forming a niche specialism in law, combining the theory and practice of international law with our diverse range of development, globalisation and law in the modern economy modules.
You will join an international body of SOAS LLM, MA and other postgraduate alumni many of whom are now working at the UN, in NGOs, in government, in private practice, in policy work or in academia.
