Conduct an independent research project in your chosen area of professional legal practice*, and top up your current qualification to an LLM in just six months to a year. We’ll give you training in research skills that will prove invaluable in your future career, and a dedicated supervisor for advice and support.
If you’ve completed the Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course, or you’re a practising solicitor or barrister who has taken the former Law Society Final Examinations or BVC, this course will top up your qualification to an LLM Legal Practice.
If you’re an overseas lawyer then, subject to taking the Qualified Lawyers’ Transfer Scheme (QLTS/QLTT) and/or gaining university accreditation of prior learning and experience, you could also be eligible to apply.
Our course lets you explore your chosen area of legal professional practice in depth. You could focus on part of your current professional practice, an area that you wish to work in, or one that’s of academic interest to you.* Whichever you choose, you’ll develop your research skills in research workshops over two days. You’ll then apply these skills when researching and writing a 15,000-word dissertation.
The research skills you develop on this course are in great demand by employers in the legal profession.
There are two study days on campus, but at other times you’ll work independently with support from a dedicated supervisor. Your supervisor will help you to develop your research proposal or hypothesis, discuss your methodology (including ethics clearance) and act as a mentor throughout your time with us.
Our staff have been recognised for the quality of their work. In 2014, the Government acknowledged our ‘world-leading’ research in its Research Excellence Framework.
This course will give you an in-depth understanding of your chosen area of legal practice to use in your future career, and teach you vital research skills that are in great demand in the legal profession and beyond.
