As well as specialisms delivered by our staff, there are options in oil and gas or energy law (from the Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law and Policy). You can also choose from business, and politics and international relations.
Students of the Law (General) course from University of Dundee often combine topics from different areas. For example, you might want to combine an understanding of corporate and commercial law with environmental law, or to combine an understanding of security with international criminal justice.
This wide choice allows you to develop existing areas of specialism or to expand your knowledge into new areas of law that you have not studied or practised in before.
Entrants to LLM courses usually fall into one of four categories:
- they are professionals, often working in legal practice, and they want to increase their qualifications and specialisms in order to enhance their career prospects
- they are looking for a change of career or a change of specialism
- they want to complete their education
- they are considering an academic career
The flexibility of the LLM (General) has meant that graduates have gone on to pursue careers in all aspects of the legal profession, from private practice, or as in-house counsel, to working for governments or NGOs, as well as PhD study and academia.
