The LLM in Law (or General LLM) is suitable for students seeking a range of choice among a number of advanced courses, without necessarily specialising in one area of law. Students who wish to specialise should apply for one of the nominate degrees listed in the menu on the right. It is possible to transfer to the general LLM in Law after arrival; but transferring from the general Law LLM to a specialised LLM may not be possible due to limitations on programme numbers. Please note that students taking the general LLM Law may not select more than one full-year or two one-semester courses from each of the specialised degree programmes. It is therefore essential that you give careful thought in advance to which LLM programme best suits your interests.
Edinburgh Law School offers a flexible LLM programme structure. In addition to full-year courses, a broad range of specialised, research-led one semester law courses will be offered on the LLM degree. Students can select either three full-year courses, six one semester courses, or a combination of both full-year and one-semester options, thus enabling each individual student to tailor their own curriculum as best suits their interests and future career plans.
You may take the LLM in Law either full-time (over one year) or part-time (over the course of two years).
The LLM degree comprises 180 credits. Students must complete 120 credits of taught courses (the dissertation accounts for 60 programme credits). There are no compulsory courses for the LLM in Law and students may select courses in Table A (Law courses) and/or Table B (MSc in Criminology Courses).
Students on the General LLM are able to take up to 60 credits from each of the other LLM programmes offered in the School (with the exception of the MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice from which students are allowed to take only 40 credits)
The minimum basic admission requirement for taught postgraduate degrees is a UK Upper Second Class (2:1) honours degree or its international equivalent, in Law or Social Sciences.
The majority of our applicants have studied law; applications from non-law students with relevant studies and experience will be considered, however, and further guidance on this as it applies to each of our programmes may be sought from the School.
