The Master of Laws from University of Auckland is designed to provide an advanced level of study for both full-time students and those who are legal practitioners or engaged in other full- or part-time employment. It can be undertaken by coursework, research or a combination of both. You can choose from over 25 taught courses and entry to the LLM is available throughout the year.
You can concentrate your study in particular areas of specialisation or study a broad range of legal subjects.
The detailed analyses of particular areas of law, as well as courses that are more policy-oriented, make the LLM taught (coursework) an effective pathway to take your legal knowledge and transferable skills to the next level. The in-depth study required in the LLM by research can enhance employment opportunities either professionally or academically.
