Where can I study an LLM?
The LLM is an internationally recognised qualification and can be studied at a range of universities across a variety of legal disciplines and practice areas.
Do all places offer the same courses?
In the UK alone, there are currently 114 institutions which offer LLM courses for the upcoming academic year, every one with a different list of specialisations.
Each institution’s offering can range from the General LLM to courses in over twenty different subjects. When picking out the best course for you, make sure you take a look at the requirements for each university, who will generally ask for a 2:1 classification in your undergraduate degree.
For example, The University of Law has nine courses currently in place, with that number set to be doubled over the coming year as new programmes are introduced. As is the case with other universities, their LLM courses can be taken either full or part-time, and can be undertaken either from the start of the autumn term, or from the beginning of the calendar year.
Will the courses all be at a campus?
For many courses, you’ll be able to either complete an LLM online or by attending lessons on-site - although this latter option could be subject to social distancing restrictions as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
In addition, there could also be arrangements to carry out at LLM part-time over two years, rather than the one-year full-time option, should that be a better arrangement for you.
The University of Law has campuses across the country, from London and Bristol to Manchester and Nottingham, offering you a wide range of locations from which to study an LLM. For instance, the Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution course is taught from Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Bloomsbury and Nottingham. You should take a look at the details for each course offered by The University of Law to get a better idea of your options in terms of locations for study.
