Course Summary

This is a truly comparative experience, dividing your time between Scotland and France, with the opportunity to gain two degrees. This course is designed for graduates in Law. However, the LLM can be taken if you have already studied private international law at undergraduate level as well as by those who are new to the subject. If you are new to the subject you will be provided with additional instruction. You will be assessed through a combination of exams and essays. The courses taught by Law share a common pattern; those in the autumn semester are assessed by exam and those in the second semester by essays. In each case you will be given a chance to practice this style of assessment and given feedback on your performance before the formal assessment. Graduates of this LLM are pursuing careers in a wide variety of sectors including legal practice, banking, international organisations, State ministries or academia.
