The LLM is a postgraduate degree which allows for deeper study into a specific area of law.
LLMs are internationally recognised qualifications that can be undertaken at a range of institutions, with the option of online, in-person or blended learning. Usually, a full-time LLM will take one year to complete and a part-time LLM will take two years to complete. LLMs involve research, essay writing and a final dissertation.
Studying an LLM allows you to gain specialist knowledge in a particular area of law and can lead to a career in academia and research or in legal practice. There are over 100 universities and institutions in the UK where you can study an LLM, including The University of Law. For EU and UK students, the LLM costs can range between £8,650 to up to £18,000.
