A legal advantage

The postgraduate programmes offered at Southampton Law School provide an opportunity for students to tailor their study path to their own requirements, creating a bespoke experience. This allows students to drive their own professional development and career paths.

To be awarded an LLM, students study four subjects from the wide range of modules indicated for the individual programme, and write a dissertation on a topic chosen by them. Students are able to tailor their LLM by choosing and matching subjects to their interests and future career choices. Some students already know that they want to specialise in a particular area, others are anxious to keep to a broader path for the moment – freedom of choice gives flexibility to construct your own path.

Of course, careers and employment are a central concern to you and to the School. We have a dedicated careers team, an LLM careers fair, and our strong relationships with commercial practice allow us, on a competitive basis, to offer a number of summer vacation schemes and internships with leading international law firms.

While at Southampton I have also been able to interact and debate with people of different backgrounds and viewpoints. I have joined the Debating Society and the Islamic Society and through these have met people outside of law and have broadened my outlook and put the law I am learning into real world context
