New postgraduate qualification in Insurance Law

Published: 9 April 2013Origin: Southampton Law School

A new LLM programme in Insurance Law at the Southampton Law School will give graduates specialist knowledge of this complex and rewarding area of law.

Insurance contract law has been offered as an optional subject at undergraduate level since 2011; this postgraduate programme will allow students to spend a year studying the subject in depth, reflecting on the interaction of insurance law with other aspects of business. They will study two compulsory modules in insurance law and marine insurance, choose two others to complete their taught programme and write a dissertation in the summer.

Senior Research Fellow Johanna Hjalmarsson leads the LLM programme. She says “Insurance law is a topic of major importance to private individuals and the commercial sector alike, but is researched or taught at only a very small number of universities in the UK and other common law jurisdictions. It is a complex and intriguing subject that is fascinating to study and offers a multitude of rewarding career prospects.”

Several academics with a primary research interest is insurance law are based at the Southampton and will teach on the programme. The Law School is also home to the largest community of post-graduate researchers in the subject in the UK.
