Postgraduate study

From 2020, you can study one of our brand new LLM programmes, developed with contemporary legal and global challenges in mind.

Take control and pursue your own interests by structuring your ideal LLM programme. You can choose from a wide range of modules across maritime, commercial and international law. You'll work alongside our team of international legal experts, who are engaged in innovative, practice-orientated and interdisciplinary legal research.
Each of our LLM programmes begin with an intensive, one-week induction on the common law, specifically designed to help students familiarise themselves with the legal system of England and Wales at a postgraduate level.


During your studies you'll begin to enhance your career through the School's strong links with the local, national and global legal profession. We offer tailored recruitment fairs, prizes for high-performing students, pro bono work, invaluable placement opportunities, and weekly guest seminars on the challenges faced in the profession today, delivered by leading practitioners.


You will become a graduate and alumnus of a highly-regarded Law School with an in-depth knowledge of the law. Our graduates work in law firms, barristers' chambers, industry, governmental and non-governmental organisations worldwide.
