    Postgraduate Taught Courses: Law 2009 Entry

    LLM

    If you’re keen to grapple with the intellectual challenge of law and discover how to put theory into practice, this course could be for you, wherever you are in the world.

    The focus of the programme is on International Business Law, but there are six named awards which allow you to reflect your own specialism, including:
    • LLM International Business Law (Commercial Law)
    • LLM International Business Law (Company Law )
    • LLM International Business Law (Environment Law)
    • LLM International Business Law (Information Technology Law)
    • LLM International Business Law (Intellectual Property Law)
    • LLM International Business Law (Trade Law)


    Students do not have to have a law degree to enrol on the programme and there are many non-legal careers where a law degree focused on a relevant specialist area may be a career advantage.

    This includes for example an LLM in Environmental Law, which may be of benefit to those involved in local government or planning, while an LLM in IT law may be more appropriate for those employed in the IT sector.

    Students can study on site at The Park, but also have the opportunity to study online with a distance learning facility allowing global access.

    This gives you the chance to study at your own pace and additional flexibility, allowing you to explore the world of law either in the classroom or from the comfort of your own home, wherever it may be.

    Masters Top-up

    If you have a relevant postgraduate diploma or professional award (eg LPC or BVC) then you may be able to top this up to a Masters degree by completion of a refresher module on legal research and a dissertation. For further information, please contact the course leader to find out if you are eligible.
