Programme Structure

  • The Master of Laws (LLM) is available to study full-time for one year or part-time for two years.
  • Each of the LLM programmes follows a common format: you will take 135 credits worth of taught modules which may be assessed by essays or examinations (see module overviews for full assessment details and dates) and thereafter you work on a 15,000-word dissertation worth 45 credits (submitted mid August). You are required to balance your taught modules equally across the two teaching semesters – a full explanation of this process will be available during induction and before module selection.
  • What differs from programme to programme is the range of modules that you are required to choose from. If you wish to take an unrestricted range of modules and any approved dissertation topic you should apply for the Master of Laws.
