The School of Law offers a rich and diverse range of courses for either a general LLM or a specialised LLM programme and provides choices from more than 80 taught courses. There is also a major research component in the form of an extended essay, which counts as one course in your LLM choices. The LLM can be taken full-time (one year) or part-time (two years). Full-time students complete four courses to obtain an LLM degree. Three of these must be selected from the taught course programme. The four courses may be made up of either full or half courses (a full course runs over two terms and a half course runs over one term). The taught component of the LLM takes place over two terms, commencing end of September until the end of March.

Entry Requirements For This Course

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.
