Course Description

The Law LLM programme offers great flexibility in choosing your programme of advanced legal study if you do not wish to commit to a specified route. You can study for a postgraduate certificate, a postgraduate diploma or LLM by choosing from a range of law modules selected in consultation with the course leader. Modules will have a social and human rights context and you will also study research methods modules.

Our new LLM in Law will provide you with an opportunity to explore this area and develop your knowledge around Law, particularly in areas affected by international and comparative law. You will be introduced to the relevant rules, values and institutions of comparative and international law, which then feed into, and challenge your learning, through study topics including public international law, international human rights, commercial law, and corporate social responsibility.
