Course Content

For this specialism you will take 150 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 10,000 word dissertation worth 30 credits (submitted mid August). You are required to balance your taught modules across the two teaching semesters – a full explanation of this process will be available during induction and before module selection.

The range of modules that you are required to choose from differs from programme to programme. If you wish to take an unrestricted range of modules and any approved dissertation topic you should apply for the Master of Laws.

Induction and choosing your modules

We run a comprehensive two-week induction period that includes an overview of the programme and advice on module selection as well as a range of other vital information sessions. You do not have to select your modules until you have had the opportunity to listen and learn about them in greater detail during induction. More detail of the induction programme will be made available online by early September each year.

LLM Year Planner

The LLM Year Planner gives you an idea of the structure of the programme and key periods for assessment and exams.

Full-time

Undertaking a masters programme is a serious commitment, with weekly contact hours being in addition to numerous hours of independent learning and research needed to progress at the required level. When coursework or examination deadlines are approaching independent learning hours may need to increase significantly.

Part-time

The part-time LLM is essentially aimed at legal practitioners working full-time in the UK. You will attend the same modules and follow the same teaching timetable as full-time students.

The part-time programme is, however, spread over two academic years.

In year one, you will normally complete around 90 credits of taught modules. In year two, you will normally take a further 60 credits of taught modules and submit the compulsory 10,000 word dissertation (30 credits). This can be changed if necessary, as the dissertation can be done in either year. However we would always advise part-time students to take around 90 credits of taught modules in their first year if they are timetabled in a convenient slot.

Although not recommended, it is possible for part-time students, who are having difficulties in finding taught modules that fit in with their work timetable, to submit two dissertations – one per year. This would then enable you to take fewer credits of taught modules each year.

Entry Requirements

We have limited spaces available and therefore to avoid disappointment we recommend that you apply soon as you can.

Law graduates

The usual qualification for entry to the LLM programme is a degree in law, or a degree with a substantial law content, of at least 2.1 honours (or equivalent). Law graduates with 2.2 honours who also have other legal qualifications and/or substantial professional legal experience may also qualify.

Non-law graduates

Non-law graduates with a minimum second class honours degree, that have also obtained a Merit (or 60 per cent) in the Common Professional Examination (CPE) or Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) recognised by the UK professional bodies, may also qualify. Non-law graduates may also be considered on the basis of exceptional professional experience (of at least five years) in a legal area or an area directly related to their programme of study.

In all cases, a full online application is required in order for a fair assessment and decision to be made. Each application is considered on its merits and on sight of full application documents.

A full and detailed CV is required for all applications and is particularly relevant where professional experience needs to be considered.
