LLM at London Met
London Metropolitan University's Faculty of Law, Governance and International Relations is the largest academic body of its kind in the UK, attracting high calibre students from across the globe.
The faculty has more than 70 specialist academic staff and a range of high quality courses. Yvonne Smyth is the course director of one of the Faculty’s most popular courses, the LLM. She says her greatest satisfaction comes from seeing her students graduate and go on to exciting careers in law, government, the United Nations and business.
Anton came from his native Ukraine to study the LLM, followed by the CPE, at London Met. After graduating, Anton went on to qualify as a barrister and moved to the USA, where he worked for several years in international arbitration in Washington.
“I am constantly applying the knowledge acquired on the LLM course at London Met. During my time there I took a variety of international commercial law subjects including arbitration. I was very impressed by the high quality of teaching. The faculty was very supportive and provided me with guidance throughout. I met so many interesting students from all corners of the world and realised I would enjoy working across borders.”
Anjana, from Canada, says she hasn’t looked back since completing the LLM at London Met. “I found London Met’s programme offered the flexibility of evening and day classes which I needed. London Met has enthusiastic lecturers who are not only passionate about their subjects but are interested in the academic development of their students.
“The focus is on the student preparing for class discussions - not traditional formal lectures. I also chose to write a dissertation which required an enormous amount of self directed study, research, drafting and writing. From my own work experience, employers look for people who can work self-directed and who enjoy the chance to produce work from scratch by using research skills.”
LLM courses are available as either full or part-time modes of study at our London City and places are available starting in September 2011.
