To this end, the Law programme at Dublin City University offers a range of modules that goes beyond black-letter, formulaic legal study: the programme embraces a socio-legal methodology and has a European and international orientation.
Students can choose to specialise in a particular area of law or can pursue a more general degree (see section below for programme structure and module choice). We offer modules in three broadly discernible areas:
law & society, ethics, and human rights
EU, international and transnational law
institutions, public law and public policy
Our graduates have gone on to, or have progressed within, careers in the legal professions (including the bar), academia and research (including a high proportion in funded PhD programmes and research positions), as well as NGOs, advocacy, civil service and public administration.
With its internationalist orientation, the LLM (Master of Laws) programme caters well for those interested in access to or promotion within careers in international and European institutions. The programme is designed to make graduates better problem-solvers and more confident advocates: thus it prepares graduates for work as in-house lawyers in companies and organisations, as well as in higher level civil service or bureaucratic careers.
