This general LLM programme is the ideal choice for students wishing to expose themselves to diverse areas of advanced legal scholarship. We offer a very wide range of specialist courses, many taught by internationally recognised experts in their fields, and legal and industry professionals.
You will select courses from across the School’s key research and teaching fields, including:
- commercial law
- criminal law and evidence
- EU law,
- intellectual property
- media and technology law
- international law
- legal history and legal theory
- medical law

This structure ensures you can pursue a truly diverse and challenging curriculum through which you will be able to develop a broad expertise in cutting-edge legal scholarship.
The programme can be taken full-time over 12 months, or part-time over 24 months (due to current UKBA regulations, part-time study is only available for UK or EU citizens).
The University of Edinburgh and the Edinburgh Law School is an Internationally recognised Higher Education institution accredited to provide advanced education. It should be noted that a postgraduate masters degree in Law from the University of Edinburgh does not qualify for entry into the Scottish (or other country's) Legal Practice. Advice from your local Bar Association or Law Society should be sought if you wish to pursue legal practice in your country of domicile.
