The School of Law offers the largest LLM programme in the UK with a suite of 22 LLM programmes. One of the distinctive features of our LLM is the exceptionally wide range of over 190 LLM module options. These are advanced programmes of study, so you will be expected to direct your own work and develop high level legal and transferable skills. To complete an LLM you will need to study and successfully pass 180 credits. Each of the LLM programmes follows a common format: you will take taught modules equalling 135 credits and then you will work on a 15,000-word dissertation (45 credits).
What differs from programme to programme is the range of modules that you are required to choose from. If you wish to take an unrestricted range of modules and any approved dissertation topic related to law you may do so and graduate with the Master of Laws.
