Course Summary

The Birmingham LLM has been designed to allow in-depth analysis of important legal topics.

This General LLM pathway is particularly suitable for those seeking exposure to a range of legal disciplines, giving students expertise across the board and providing the skills and knowledge required for a successful legal career.

On this pathway you have complete flexibility in module selection, giving you the opportunity to decide which areas of law have the most relevance to your future career and to choose modules that most interest you. With one of the widest ranges of options on any LLM programme in the UK, with over 30 modules available, you can create a unique degree tailored to your future career aspirations. This is the ideal pathway if you wish to gain Masters-level knowledge and skills without restricting yourself to just one particular branch of law.

Our graduates move onto a diverse range of careers, with many going on to work in top law schools and law firms. Some examples of where our recent graduates have gone on to work include: Linklaters LLP, 5 Pump Court Chambers, Bar Pro Bono Unit and Squire Patton Boggs. A number of our postgraduate students go directly from Birmingham to complete the Legal Practice Course or the Bar Professional Training Course.

The Careers Network

The Careers Network organises regular events including presentations by top law firms and the annual Law Fair. It also runs workshops to help students prepare effective applications and to prepare for their next move. Its events on non-law careers, including journalism, marketing and working with charities, can be of interest to law students.

Modules

This module is intended to introduce students to the nature of transnational crimes, such as drug trafficking, money laundering, piracy, terrorism and torture, and the treaties that create obligations for States to suppress these crimes. The module will also cover the mechanisms of state co-operation with respect to transnational crimes, such as mutual legal assistance and extradition. Students will also study the workings of INTERPOL- one of the pivotal international bodies that is dedicated to the promotion of inter-state co-operation and to the suppression of transnational criminality. The course concludes with a consolidation/revision session.
