Course Summary

This programme will allow you to build your LLM drawing from modules across our taught LLM offering to create an LLM programme designed purely for your needs. Many people choose to study on a specialist programme at master’s level, but such programmes do not suit everyone and they may not suit you. If achieving your academic or career goals requires you to study across traditional boundaries then you may wish to apply for the General LLM. Perhaps to achieve your career goals you must be able to combine an understanding of corporate and commercial law with an understanding of environmental law, or to combine an understanding of international law with international criminal justice. Graduates in our competitive world want their CV to stand out. What better way to do that than to demonstrate that you have studied with world experts across a range of areas relevant to your future career. Dundee Law School has an excellent reputation in environmental law as well as in international law and private international law. Our specialist LLMs provide world leading teaching in areas from corporate and commercial law to international law and security. The General LLM at Dundee enables you to combine key modules taught by world experts in all of these areas in one programme. Armed with a bespoke LLM our graduates are well placed to pursue their career aspirations in law and related fields. Graduates from the General LLM go on to pursue careers in all aspects of the legal profession, from academia to corporate law, to international law or environmental law.
