Module overview

The dissertation is an opportunity for you to pursue a piece of independent legal research on an issue of interest to you which may arise from one of the other units studied by you or as a result of your own curiosity concerning a particular legal problem. The dissertation also allows you to consolidate and then showcast the knowledge and skills you have acquired during the taught part of the LLM.

The Dissertation is core to the LLM Maritime Law, LLM International Commercial and Corporate Law, LLM International Law and Human Rights and the LLM Masters in Law, which means that it must be taken and passed.
