About the LSE
The London School of Economics and Political Science is a leading international centre for excellence in teaching and research and has an outstanding reputation across the spectrum of the social sciences. Its students and academic staff are drawn from over 140 countries and about half the student population is postgraduate, making LSE one of the largest concentrations of advanced study in its fields. LSE’s identity is inextricably linked to its location in the heart of London, near to the City, to Parliament and to the Law Courts.
There is a constant interchange of ideas and knowledge between the School and the outside world. LSE’s new strengths for the new century include the study of globalisation, risk and business management, new communications technologies and new forms of governance. LSE aims to educate students who make a difference to the world.
About the LSE Law Department
Since the foundation of the LSE just over a century ago, the study of law has been an integral part of the School's mission. The Law Department is one of the largest in the School. Its special place in a school of social sciences has given legal studies in the Department a distinctive, interdisciplinary character. The Law Department has played a major role in policy debates and policy-making and in the education of lawyers and law teachers from around the world. It enjoys a uniquely cosmopolitan student body, and has deeply influenced legal education in most common law countries.
Staff and students in the Law Department come from all over the world, and bring to the Department an unparalleled international and interdisciplinary outlook in teaching and research. This has always been the mission of the LSE Law Department. As an important vehicle for this approach to legal studies, members of the LSE were prominent among the founders of the Modern Law Review, a journal that quickly achieved an international and influential role at the forefront of legal scholarship.
Closely linked to this innovative approach has been the exploration of new fields of study. Many important subjects were first taught and examined systematically from an academic perspective at the LSE. These include banking law, taxation law, civil litigation, company law, labour law, family law, aspects of welfare law, and studies of the legal system and the legal profession. These subjects, and many others, have since become central to the concerns of lawyers and researchers.
An LLM programme designed for working professionals !
We were delighted to launch our new LLM programme, the Executive LLM in December 2013.
Students on the programme will study for the LLM by taking a set of intensive modules over a period of three to four years.
