This bespoke Laws (Flexible Study) LLM at Queen Mary University of London enables you to study while you work. Over a two- to four-year period, you can choose from the full range of the School of Law’s postgraduate modules, which can be studied in London, at a combination of our international campuses, and with online learning modules.


What you'll study

This Laws (Flexible Study) LLM programme at Queen Mary University of London allows you to choose from over 200 LLM Modules taught each year in London (some of which are taught in the evening), a further 30 modules in Paris, and our online learning modules. 

You qualify with a specialised LLM or a general LLM. To specialise, you’ll need to choose at least four modules from your specialism and your dissertation must be on a topic relevant to this area. You don’t have to choose your modules until you have learnt about them in greater detail during your induction period.

This course requires completion of 180 module credits. If you're part time, you will complete at least 45 credits per year and complete a 45-credit dissertation in your final year.

You also have the option to complete a second dissertation in lieu of taught modules. Professional mentoring and internships are available.

You’ll have access to an excellent series of lectures in Critical Thinking and Writing in Law to help you improve your writing and research in law skills.

If you want to choose from any of our London-based LLM modules, you may also want to consider our Master of Laws LLM.
