Summary

The Master of Laws (General) is designed for those who desire flexibility in the choice of modules and dissertation topic while studying. The programme design means that you can choose modules based on the criteria most important to you. Whether you have a particular career goal in mind, or are studying for pure enjoyment, the Master of Laws (General) programme allows you maximum control over your degree.

When you study the LLM Master of Laws (General) with us you will:

  • Broaden your career horizons with a valuable Master’s qualification in the specialist fields of your choosing

  • Learn professional skills to make you stand out to potential employers

  • Gain an up-to-date knowledge of law and practice in your chosen area and the impact of those developments on commercial and legal practice

  • Receive one-to-one tutor support and feedback on your work from a fully-qualified lawyer

  • Develop a portfolio demonstrating the law in practice

You’ll have the chance to select four elective modules that interest you, as well as complete a dissertation that allows you to explore an area linked to one of your elective module subject areas through independent research. You’ll learn practical legal skills in analysis and critical evaluation, alongside a range of transferable skills such as research and presentation skills.

Our flexibly structured course is delivered by qualified lawyers and research and teaching focused academics, bringing their expertise and experience into the classroom to provide you with the real-world insight that can help prepare you for the practical application of the law.

In addition to a general induction to the programme, there is a two-week induction covering the Key Principles of the English Legal System. This is compulsory for non-law students, but also open to law students wanting a refresher in the fundamentals of the law of England and Wales. This would be useful for any student who has taken a considerable break from legal education.

Please note that, due to Home Office regulations, students who require a Tier 4 visa to study with us are not permitted to study online and can only choose face-to-face taught modules.
