The increasing interaction between European countries and their different legal systems has led to growing demand for lawyers who can interact with other legal systems than their own.
The LLM European Legal Studies programme offers an opportunity to develop your own perspectives on the implications of legal Europe.
It enables you to explore the issues and participate in debate, while developing your own legal skills and understanding. In addition it provides valuable training for a career in modern legal practice, in European, international and Government organisations, or in legal research.
The LLM European Legal Studies programme:
- provides you with a general appreciation of current issues in specific areas of law, both domestic and international,
- stimulates a critical approach to evaluation of current and proposed regulation and cultivates independent and original thought;
- enables you to undertake in-depth research and demonstrate advanced knowledge in specific areas of law;
- provides opportunities to attend seminars, guest lectures and workshops organised by the Law School's Centre for European Law and Governance, directed by the holder of a Jean Monnet Chair awarded by the European Commission.
The LLM European Legal Studies programme is very flexible and offers a wide range of modules which provide you with the ability to customise the programme to meet your own professional and/or employment needs or interests.

A law degree doesn’t restrict graduates to careers within the legal profession and law graduates enter professions as diverse as finance, sales and marketing, digital communications and recruitment.
We are committed to extending extracurricular opportunities to our students, helping to enhance their CVs in a competitive graduate job market. We work in partnership with lawyers, charities and voluntary organisations to give students the opportunity to practise and extend their skills and we run several Pro Bono schemes and provide advice to members of the community on different legal issues.
Students successfully completing the LLM programme may have the opportunity to continue their legal study through the School’s PhD programme or through the Centre for Professional Legal Studies professional programmes (the Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course).
