This LLM is suitable for law graduates and can provide a springboard into a diverse range of careers. It could also boost the prospects for those already working in related fields - or as a solid first step towards a research career.

Modules

LLM candidates are required to submit a 12,000 word dissertation after completing their taught courses. Students select their own topic in discussion with tutors - either building upon something already studied or exploring something new. Supervisors support students in developing their research and writing skills through this process. Research training is provided to students in the summer, shortly after the end of the examination period. The dissertation allows students to develop and demonstrate research skills. These are skills associated with finding and selecting legal and non-legal materials. It also allows students to develop and demonstrate other skills with which they are already familiar ? skills of analysis, synthesis, critical judgment and evaluation.
