Our LLM course will give you an understanding of law in an international context. Through a combination of theory and practical application, you’ll explore issues of law and legal theory at an advanced level.
As well as investigating areas like trade law and dispute resolution, you’ll also have the chance to specialise in your own particular areas of interest, such as international governance or competition law.
Throughout the course you’ll develop research skills vital both to your assignments and your future career. Our teaching team consists of professionally qualified legal practitioners as well as research-active academics; in 2014, the Government acknowledged our ‘world-leading’ law research*. You can be confident you’ll receive up-to-date career advice as well as the latest legal theory and case studies.
You’ll also learn alongside students from all over the world, giving you first-hand experience of working in a global context.
Our facilities include modern teaching rooms and a mock courtroom. You’ll have access to all our campus libraries and digital resources, including our Virtual Learning Environment which has a range of online resources to complement your studies.
