UK Master of Laws Courses

Introduction to Master of Laws

Master of Laws is a postgraduate course designed for law graduates and practising lawyers to specialise in a particular area, such as tax, environmental or employment law. Courses generally last one year full-time and 24 months part-time and students will select the module or area they wish to study and complete a dissertation over the learning period.

Most law schools have limited places available, so it is important to have a clear idea of what you wish to focus on during the application phase. An LLM qualification will provide graduates with a competitive edge in a crowded job market, and also offer the chance for a change in direction for those currently employed.

Master of Laws Careers

Master of Laws graduates will move into legal or corporate practice and also take on roles in management, business, banking, non-governmental organisations, research and teaching. Traditional legal roles include lawyer, risk analysis and litigation. If LLM graduates wish to remain in study, a number also choose to study for a PhD.
