LLM Law programme from World Maritime University improves students’ research and independent study skills as well as the ability to develop substantiated critical argument. It is open to students who have completed successfully the Postgraduate Diploma in International Maritime Law, or who hold an LLB (or equivalent) degree.
They are also invited to attend a one-day seminar in London. Research in law requires an understanding of the interrelationship between theory, method and research design, practical skills and particular methods, the knowledge base of the subject and methodological foundations. The first module prepares students for the Dissertation component, the topic of which focuses on an area of interest to individual students. Students will receive full guidance and support from the academic programme coordinators throughout the dissertation writing process:
Researching International Maritime Law made up of a literature review, comprising of 2,500 words, which counts for 40% of the module marks; and a research proposal comprising of 1,500 words, which counts for 60% of the module marks.
A research-based Dissertation, independent study, supported by access to three comprehensive handbooks giving extensive guidance and the supervision of the academic coordinators.
The programme consists of two parts, and students are supported by an e-learning platform, where the programme coordinators will provide tutorial support and generate forum discussion.
