Students in the full-time Master of Laws (LLM) programmes must complete a total number of 40-44 credits in one year. The students are allowed to register for 17-23 credits of modules per semester. A student would typically read 20 credits in a semester.
In order to obtain a specialization indicated on their degree scrolls, students will have to complete the number of credits and compulsory module(s) as part of the requirement of the specialist LL.M
Alternatively, students may opt from the outset to take any 40-44 credits of modules and graduate with an LLM degree with no specialization. The latter option affords maximum flexibility in course selection according to the student’s individual preferences and interests.
