The LLM Master of Laws from UCLan Cyprus is available to students with a legal and non-legal background. Seminars are delivered during the late afternoon and evening to facilitate both working professionals and recent graduates.
The language of instruction is English. The course does not have any examinations, but is assessed through written Assignments, Presentations and a Dissertation. Emphasis is placed on private study and research, assisted by the University’s outstanding law resources and databases as directed by tutors.
Therefore, class contact time is limited reflective of a desire to offer a world-class course of interest to the talented, serious and dedicated student, whilst providing the necessary flexibility for anyone juggling other professional and personal commitments.
The different areas of concentration and module offering could not be more relevant to the increasingly globalised and transnational marketplace.
There are considerable career opportunities for those with specialist knowledge in the field of law in general such as advocates, in house lawyers or legal consultants, internal auditors, entrepreneurs, business creation at the national and international level, work at European and international institutions or organisations but also security personnel, criminology and the general public sector including diplomacy.
Past UCLan graduates have gained or developed careers in diverse legal, professional, commercial and regulatory fields.
