Course Summary

The UK is at a crucial juncture in its relationship with the EU. Offering a broad perspective on the governance of Europe, this course examines the role of its institutions in the global legal order.

Overview

On our LLM European Law, you will develop specialist knowledge of the law of the supranational European Union as well as the intergovernmental Council of Europe.

This course also addresses the substantive laws these institutions have adopted. You can choose modules in the aspects of European law that interest you, whether it is the EU Single Market, or EU Trade Law, or the Council of Europe's flagship European Convention on Human Rights, or EU intellectual property or competition law.

As the institutional home of several leading texts on EU law and the European Convention on Human Rights, the School of Law is a natural choice for pursuing your advanced studies in European law. Academic staff have strong reputations in various areas of European law, including fundamental rights, public procurement, international relations and intellectual property.

Careers

Our graduates move into a wide range of careers. Many go into the legal profession or return to their previous legal careers with specialist knowledge and enhanced prospects. Others successfully seek employment with international organisations as well as international and local NGOs. Recent graduate destinations include BAE Systems, Clifford Chance, London Stock Exchange and Simmons & Simmons.

Some graduates further their academic career by progressing onto our PhD programme. These students often choose to stay at the University of Nottingham beyond their doctorate, with a number of academics becoming members of staff after completing their LLM/masters and PhD with us.

Modules

Written work on a legal topic of the your choice resulting from individual research and normally based upon material falling within the area covered by the degree for which you are registered.
