We offer a very wide range of specialist courses at this Law programme at The University of Edinburgh , many taught by internationally recognised experts in their fields, and legal and industry professionals.
This programme is made up from 120 credits of taught courses and a 60-credit dissertation on an approved topic (generally one that builds upon one of the courses that you have studied with us).
There are no compulsory courses on the general LLM that all students have to take. Instead you may choose from the diverse range of specialist courses offered within the School (subject to the availability of places or whether courses are running in a given year).
The LLM in Law is an excellent way to identify and develop a legal specialism for a career in legal practice or academic research.
Many recent graduates have used the programme as a platform for further study. Others who are professionally qualified are now working as attorneys, lawyers, legal advisers and specialists, financial analysts and tax associates for organisations including Deloitte, The Royal Bank of Scotland, the Brooklyn Supreme Court and the Supreme Court of Japan.
