Course Summary

Kingston's LLM offers you an exciting opportunity to gain a solid postgraduate education in law at the same time as boosting your professional career, through development of your research, analytical and practical skills.

This course is a flexible, rigorous master’s programme: you can take modules at a high academic level in any area of law that interests you. We combine excellent, rigorous academic teaching with opportunities to engage with the professional world and to develop your professional network.

In addition to the Department of Law's team of highly skilled academics - some of them also combining teaching with legal practice - lectures are taught by experienced practitioners. This helps to ensure that the courses are constantly refreshed with the latest industry thinking and practice and provides you with the opportunity to mix with people who can provide hands-on experience and insight into their area of legal work.

Assessment: Written coursework, examinations and dissertation. Your LLM in General Law is a demonstration of your skills, determination and expertise. Graduates from this course can expect to work in government, international organisations and NGOs, and find roles as in-house legal advisers. Your specialism will help you progress your career in corporate law, financial law, or towards becoming a solicitor or barrister.


This module is a core requirement for all LLM programmes. It aims to develop students' skills in advanced legal research and their appreciation of the theoretical underpinnings of legal research. The module also enables students to choose their own area of legal interest to research in depth and to produce an extended piece of academic writing demonstrating their skills in research and analysis.
