Overview

The LLM in Law and Society at Keele University offers the chance to discuss and debate fascinating questions like these and more with a diverse cohort of recent graduates and professionals.

Developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills alongside specialist knowledge, you'll explore the ways in which the legal system – its institutions, processes and protagonists – affects and interacts with us as individuals, communities, societies, nations and the world at large.

Career:

A postgraduate law degree is an internationally-recognised qualification that can open up opportunities for a wide range of roles across the public, private and third sectors.

Intellectually challenging and personally fulfilling, the LLM in Law and Society will give you unique insight into the connected areas of the law, rights, justice, human behaviour and society that can be of enormous benefit when working in legal practice in areas such as family law, criminal law or social welfare law. You could also pursue careers with national and international charities and NGOs, or in law reform, for example, with the Law Commission for England and Wales, the European Court of Human Rights or European Commission on Human Rights, or the International Court of Justice or International Criminal Court.
