A master's degree in law is a fantastic way for law graduates to develop a specialisation, or for non-lawyers working in related fields to gain a deeper understanding of legal issues.
You'll be taught fundamental topics in international law at the cutting-edge of current research, while simultaneously developing the necessary legal skills to apply your knowledge in a clinical context. You'll also have the chance to diversify your training through extensive module options.
The International Law and Legal Practice course from University of East London is perfect for lawyers and law graduates looking for career development, although all of our LLM courses can be studied by students without a background in law, since you will be trained in the necessary analytical and legal skills.
The programme also offers an optional placement year, following your first year. Placements will be provided and supported either by us or a partner organisation where you'll gain worthwhile and practical real-world experience in handling issues relating to aspects of social welfare law. This is a unique and exceptional opportunity for you to work in law. International students wanting to do the Placement year must indicate so upon application.
As such, the programme will also provide ideal training for paralegals, journalists, NGO and charity workers, policy advisors, consultants, lawyers, those working in business and finance or anyone who will benefit from a legal education in their career.
Your future career
Studying an LLM in international law will open up a variety of employment opportunities across the private sector, in international organisations like the UN, WTO or World Bank, and in government or the courts.
This pathway contains a strong amount of clinical training, as well as teaching in both domestic and international law to give you a multi-faceted education that will be highly attractive to employers in an increasingly competitive field.
The course also allows you to undertake a work-based project so you can gain practical experience and build professional links, while our renowned Legal Advice Centre enables you to work on real legal cases with local people to enhance your clinical skills while you study.
