Program Information

Degrees Offered:

LLM in Law and Chinese

Format: Campus

Program Description:

You will receive advanced legal training in your chosen subjects, similar to that of a standard LLM programme in the Law School, and of a level that is required for further study in the Law. You will also achieve competence (in reading, writing and oral work) in Modern Standard Chinese (Mandarin) and a solid foundation in understanding contemporary Chinese society, culture and politics.

The programme offers a unique and exciting opportunity for you to develop further your Chinese language skills through an Approved Residence Abroad where you will live and work in China as part of the programme.

Once on the programme it will be possible for students to study more specialised areas of law and, where appropriate, graduate with a named LLM degree in one of the following areas:

- Commercial Law & Chinese
- Intellectual Property Law & Chinese
- International Law & Chinese

It is an ideal opportunity to gain full masters-level training in law as well as a solid grounding in Chinese language, providing a fantastic platform for a wide range of international careers.

The programme can be taken full-time over two years.

Accreditation:

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.
