This generalist LLM course offers you maximum flexibility, enabling you to tailor your studies to meet your own interests and ambitions in a broad range of areas. It aims to equip you with the knowledge and skills you require to succeed as professionals, scholars and leaders in the field of law.
In addition to the imparting of legal knowledge, it encourages the ability to delineate and evaluate issues, select relevant materials, and produce arguments encompassing policy, existing practice and knowledge at an advanced level.
Modules are offered by schools and departments including the Graduate Institute of Political and International Studies, and the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) Centre.
The course is supported by expert academic researchers and practitioners, and features links with employers and opportunities to gain real-world experience.
Graduates from our LLM course have gone on to work for various national and international law firms, as lawyers and as in-house legal counsel for large multinational companies in the UK and abroad, as well as international organisations and NGOs. A good proportion of our recent graduates are working with the European Union, the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the International Police (INTERPOL), amongst others. A postgraduate law degree will open many doors not only in specialised areas of employment, such as law firms, European and intergovernmental and nongovernmental organisations, but also in academia (with further postgraduate study), the media (journalism and broadcasting), the civil service, and other branches of public service.
