If you’re ready to take your legal career forward, the Laws programme from Manchester Metropolitan University is an excellent next step. It’s a versatile qualification that produces employable graduates for an increasingly connected world.


The Laws programme from Manchester Metropolitan University offers an in-depth understanding of how the law applies to individuals, business and society, not only regionally and nationally but also in the global arena of international relations and multinational corporations.

As such, you will study the effectiveness of the post-1945 legal world order, from international law to the globalised system of business, trade and commercial laws. You will also learn about the growing body of international human rights and European laws, while exploring issues around Brexit.

With an element of independent study, you can focus on an area of law that interests you, with the support of specialist academics and researchers who are contributing towards shaping today’s legal environment. And, while you can choose to keep your LLM broad, you could instead opt for one of four specialist routes:

  • European Law
  • International Business Law
  • International Human Rights Law
  • International Law


Our LLM course has everything you need to give your career prospects in the legal sector a real boost. It’s an interdisciplinary, versatile qualification that is internationally recognised, giving you the valuable skills and understanding that can open doors to exciting opportunities the world over.

You should leave us with the advanced research skills that will appeal to a huge range of organisations, from public administration and the civil service to the third sector and the world of commerce. If you’d prefer to stay in academia and research, you will also be well prepared to take the next step with a PhD.

Whatever your background or experience, completing this course will show employers that you have the intellectual drive and dedication to succeed in your chosen area of law. With the advanced and specialised legal training our LLM offers, you will be well-placed to work in a multinational environment, as well as in regional or national firms or in-house legal teams.
