The LLM programmes require commitment to study throughout one calendar year. Students are given the opportunity to develop a number of important skills which are not only essential to those wishing to become lawyers but are valuable, transferable skills in themselves in other employment contexts. The School offers its postgraduate students dedicated resources, including IT facilities and teaching rooms. Students are fully supported by the School's dedicated Law Librarian and the Law Library holds an extensive selection of legal materials and on-line services such as Lexis and Westlaw. Students are encouraged to make full use of the facilities offered by the Postgraduate Research Faculty and, in particular, to take advantage of training sessions run by the Faculty, such as legal research methods.
This Programme has been developed with a view to providing students with a sound and relevant body of information and understanding, thereby providing an effective springboard to a future career in legal practice or some other profession, or in education, industry, commerce, finance or arbitration.
