Description

If you want to add to your existing law qualifications – or you’re a graduate from another subject area who’s looking to develop your legal knowledge and gain a relevant qualification – our LLM Law degree course is the perfect next step for you.

On this flexible course – which can be studied either part-time or full-time – you’ll develop expertise in law, supplemented with a choice of specialist subjects, including corporate governance, employment law, intellectual property law, and international commercial arbitration.

Law graduates on our LLM programmes can also study for The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) Level 6 Diploma in Law and Practice (Graduate Fast Track Diploma).

And when you graduate, you’ll be qualified to work as a legal executive or paralegal and following three years of qualifying employment, you can apply to be admitted as a Chartered Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives. Other opportunities include working for the Court Service and in business.
