LLM - Governance and Devolution




The past decade has seen massive structural changes to the constitutional arrangements of the United Kingdom, the most obvious being the creation of devolved legislative and executive bodies in Scotland and Wales.

The LLM in Governance and Devolution provides an opportunity to explore how these innovations have created new opportunities to repair the democratic deficit for which the single state governed from London was
widely criticised, as well as new tensions between the devolved jurisdictions. It explores issues such as accountability, democratic engagement and what constitutes ‘good governance’ and aims to develop an understanding of the broader relationships between the ‘regions’ and tiers of government / governance at the state and EU levels. As well as modules taught in the Law School, a module in Politics offered by the School of European Studies is available to students on this programme.

Key features:

·         closely allied with the Wales Governance Centre

·         taught by leading devolution experts

·         strong links with the Welsh Government and National Assembly for

·         ideal capital city location

relevant for busy professionals working in the public and voluntary
