Programme website: European Law
The programme reflects the rapid evolution of European law and governance and its unique impact upon the domestic legal orders.
The European LLM programme provides an opportunity to study core European law subjects at an advanced level, and deepens knowledge of that law through more specialised courses.
First semester courses adopt a broader approach to the various fields of EU law, while greater specialisation comes in the second semester.
This programme offers a wide range of subjects across legal fields from a European perspective, enabling you to tailor the LLM to meet your specific interests.
For 2017/18 the programme consists of 180 credits, comprising taught courses worth 120 credits (60 credits per semester) and a 10,000 word dissertation worth 60 credits.
The 120 credits of taught courses should be made up from the following course options.
Full year courses (40 credits, counting as 20 credits each semester)
20 credit courses in semester 1
Semester two courses (20 credits)
You may also be able to these 40 credits from any course offered by the Law School, depending on availability and with the express permission of the Programme Director.
Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances or lack of demand for particular courses, we may not be able to run all courses as advertised come September 2017.
By the end of this programme, students should have acquired a sophisticated understanding of the European Union's legal system and its law-making processes, and substantive knowledge of their chosen policy/course strands.
They will have explored differing approaches to the subject and developed a greater familiarity with research materials and methods.
