Course Description

The University of Essex is one of the UK's leading academic institutions, ranked ninth nationally in the last Research Assessment Exercise (RAE). The School of Law has an international reputation for research and a commitment to providing legal education of the highest quality, with our students coming from many different backgrounds. One of the striking features of law at Essex is our international flavour, evidenced in our student intake, the experience of our staff, and our strengths in areas such as international human rights law, international trade law and the law of the EU. This LLM provides you with an advanced conceptual understanding of the legal principles of European Community law, the EU, and the legal cultures and main legal system present in Europe and, when relevant to the subject, elsewhere. You will understand comparative law as a modern discipline in its own right, with its history, development and new challenges (globalisation, emergence of China, harmonisation of European law etc). You also undertake a comprehensive review of more specialised subjects, as well as general and specific approaches to comparative law. Our LLM EU Law and Comparative Legal Studies develops your critical, analytical and research skills, ensuring you are capable of working in the field of EU law as a lawyer, regulator, legal adviser or researcher with government or international and business organisations (including the EU administration), and as an academic.
