About

The increasing interaction between European countries and their different legal systems has led to growing demand for lawyers who can interact with other legal systems than their own.

The LLM European Legal Studies programme offers an opportunity to develop your own perspectives on the implications of legal Europe.

It enables you to explore the issues and participate in debate, while developing your own legal skills and understanding. In addition it provides valuable training for a career in modern legal practice, in European, international and Government organisations, or in legal research.

The LLM European Legal Studies programme:

  • provides you with a general appreciation of current issues in specific areas of law, both domestic and international,
  • stimulates a critical approach to evaluation of current and proposed regulation and cultivates independent and original thought;
  • enables you to undertake in-depth research and demonstrate advanced knowledge in specific areas of law;
  • provides opportunities to attend seminars, guest lectures and workshops organised by the Law School's Centre for European Law and Governance, directed by the holder of a Jean Monnet Chair awarded by the European Commission.

The LLM European Legal Studies programme is very flexible and offers a wide range of modules which provide you with the ability to customise the programme to meet your own professional and/or employment needs or interests.

Programme Structure

You must select at least two of your four taught modules and complete the dissertation in the area of European Legal Studies and you may select up to two modules from those listed in any other LLM programme or from a combination of LLM programmes.

The programme is delivered in two stages.  Stage One (the taught component) comprises four 30 credit modules. Stage Two comprises the dissertation.  Two of the Stage One modules will be taught and assessed in the first semester and the remaining two in the second semester.  You will progress to the dissertation upon successful completion of Stage One.
