Full Time 1yr, Part Time 2yrs

About the course To this end, all our LLM Programmes are assessed on the basis of coursework alone. Candidates choose the times of working. There are no examinations to sit. We offer a dynamic range of fourteen different taught modules and there are eight named pathways, which you can opt to study: Chinese Commercial Law Commercial Law Commercial Dispute Resolution E-Commerce Law Intellectual Property Law International Law International Financial Law Maritime Law If you choose to study a named pathway then you will study two compulsory modules (one each semester) as well as two options (one each semester).There is also the option to study for a Joint Pathway, (where you study the two compulsory modules from the two named pathways) to give you a total of four modules of study. Or, you can study for a general LLM in Law, which allows you a completely free choice of four modules so that you can study areas of law of particular interest to you. Even more flexibility is built in to the programmes in that you can commence your studies in either September (Semester A) or January (Semester B) of each year.
