Master of Laws (LLM)
University of London

The main educational aims of the Master of Laws (LLM) programme are to offer a challenging and flexible scheme of study which advances students’ engagement with a range of legal themes. It is intended that students will be encouraged to develop a range of transferable and subject specific expertiseusing their initiative and thinking out problems themselves. Students studying for the LLM will have more practice and experience of studying at the higher level and will develop a greater sophistication of thinking as they work through the courses and modules.

The programme aims to:

  • offer students advanced understanding of the specific field of law under study, their inter-relation to other legal fields, and their placement in society and context;
  • provide students with knowledge and understanding of the contexts in which laws operate, for example, the political, social, cultural and business contexts;
  • provide students with the skills needed to understand complex and advanced issues in law;
  • allow students to develop an advanced intellectual engagement with some of the most difficult legal problems;
  • further develop legal skills such as analysis, critical evaluation, logical thinking and argument;
  • assist students in developing the tools needed to undertake individual legal research;
  • facilitate self-development into professionally organised and interactive individuals by practising skills of selection, assimilation and communication;
  • promote intellectual curiosity.

The following six (6) UOL Master of Laws LLM specialisations are offered by UCC:

To complete the qualifications for the Master of Laws (LLM), students must take 16 modules from four courses.
Each course is divided into four modules (each assessed separately). A student who wishes to be examined must follow the sequence of assessment (where applicable) given under the individual syllabus outlines.
 
The sequence of study through each course has been developed by the academic team, in consultation with the Programme Director, to ensure that, where necessary, study builds upon fundamentals.
