Program Description:

The Master of Laws (General) is offered on a one year full-time or a two year part-time basis. The full-time programme runs over two semesters with a dissertation being completed over the summer. The part-time programme runs over four semesters with the dissertation being completed over the second summer. The programme is designed to give the post-graduate student a deeper understanding and insights into a variety of subjects across a broad general range. It draws on the modules offered on the specialised LLM programmes and covers such diverse areas as criminal law, civil obligations, property, human rights, comparative law and legal history. It is suited to those looking for an advanced legal education, without wishing to focus on a single branch of law.
