The Law programme from University College London (UCL) provides the ideal platform for you to develop expertise in specialist subject areas, and benefit from research-led teaching from the people who are recognised as experts in their field.
The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, research exercises and guided self-study and research. Each module is supported by a dedicated webpage containing a syllabus, learning materials, reading lists and assessment information.
Taught module assessment may be through unseen examinations, coursework essays, oral presentations or a combination of assessment formats, usually undertaken in term three. The research component is completed at the end of the programme.
Most graduates pursue a career in the legal profession. On completing the LLM some students choose to pursue a professional qualification in order to qualify as a solicitor or barrister. Our graduates go on to work in a wide range of areas, including for human rights organistations and corporate law firms, whilst others choose to remain in academia as researchers or lecturers.
EmployabilityThe LLM enables students to develop skills which are highly sought after. The programme teaches students to think critically, develop and deliver a cogent argument, research effectively and write for a legal audience.
