About this course

LLM Entry Requirements

Entry to the LLM programme normally requires a law degree with at least a B average. Each application is considered individually and recognition can be given to other extensive practical, professional or scholarly experience of an appropriate kind, such as:

  • Other degrees or qualifications
  • Research and writing (for example, published or unpublished articles)
  • Special training and/or expertise in a particular area
  • Appropriate work or other experience.

It is important to supply supporting information with your application (online or paper), together with any appropriate references or reports.

Approval to enrol for an LLM by dissertation & coursework or LLM by thesis depends on:

  • Your qualifications
  • Ability to research and write independently at the required level
  • The acceptability of your proposed dissertation project
  • The availability of resources
  • The ability of the Faculty to provide adequate supervision.

Entry Requirements

The Master of Laws (LLM) is a one-year full-time, or up to three-year part-time, programme totalling 120 points. The LLM may be completed by coursework, dissertation & coursework, or by thesis, but in each case original student research is an essential element. Each LLM is considered individually to ensure it makes up a coherent programme of study.

You may study in the first or second trimester but you have a wider choice of courses if you begin in trimester one.
