Studying Master of Laws

The Master of Laws (LL.M.) is a graduate degrees and that is achieved at a university in the area of law sciences. The abbreviation LL.M. stands for Legum Magister where LL. is the latin abbreviation for laws. The Master of Laws is consecutive studies after a Bachelor's programme in law sciences (Bachelor of Laws, L.L.B.).

As the Bachelor of Laws is already sufficient in countries such as the UK in order to practise law, the Master of Laws has a supplementary character, standing for an advanced legal qualification in a certain subject area.

In contrast to other Master degrees such as the Master of Science (M.Sc.) or the Master of Arts (M.A.) the Master of Laws is not that wide-spread, yet. Many countries such as Germany for example still require an additional state examination in order to be eligible for practising law.
