LMM General with Placement year
A master’s degree in law is a fantastic way for law graduates to develop a specialisation, or for non-lawyers working in related fields to gain a deeper understanding of legal issues.
The pathways align to major research strengths in areas like legal education, international legal research and human rights – but you can study modules from all these areas if you opt for the general LLM. The General Law LLM provides a customizable course of study for students whose interest areas may not entirely fit into a specialized track.
The four available pathways (Business & Financial Law, Human Rights Advocacy, International Law & Legal Practice, Transitional Justice & Conflict) give you an indication of the prominent themes and specialisations in our law department, and this LLM enables you to place focus on the areas that interest you in this diverse field.
LLM degrees are a valuable investment for many lawyers, as they provide an exploration of the nuances of law. An LLM degree at the University of East London may provide early-career lawyers with a competitive edge over other candidates, while for many mid-career lawyers, an LLM degree may allow them to successfully switch practices or expand their practice to include international clients.
The programme also offers an optional placement year, following your first year. Placements will be provided and supported by either the University of East London or a partner organisation where you’ll gain worthwhile and practical real-world experience in handling issues relating to aspects of social welfare law. This is a unique and exceptional opportunity for you to work in law. Do not miss such opportunity and get a special £2.000 Scholarship.
Program duration – 1 year Fees with Scholarship – £13,680 (usual price – £15.680)
