About the Course

Whether you’re a practising lawyer, LLB graduate or non-legal professional, if you’re keen to develop your career, the new University of London Postgraduate Laws Programme has an option to suit you. This programme has been designed for total flexibility. As an External student you can study in whichever way you choose, to the level you want.

The programme is managed and the degree is awarded jointly by Queen Mary and University College London through the University of London and is of the same standard as the LL.M. conducted internally at these colleges. The degree is recognized internationally. The LL.M. allows the students to develop their interests in many areas of the law to which they have been introduced in the LL.B and provides an opportunity to study specialised areas beyond the scope of the undergraduate degree.

Apart from the obvious value of a postgraduate qualification, the LL.M. is largely attractive to those who practice or are intending to practice as lawyers in a particular field and who wish to have a firm academic grounding upon which to build their practical skills. Those working in a law related field such as insurance and shipping would also find the course very useful as the degree serves to sharpen intellectual skills and improve career prospects in the highly competitive work environment.

The attractiveness of the new programme is its flexibility and the choice of subjects that it offers.

Students can expect flexibility in the following:

  • Admissions – Applications are processed year round
  • Examinations – held twice a year
  • Study Period – from one to five years to achieve the LL.M.

  • Complete online distance-learning programme with the University of London International Programmes
  • Payment – pay upfront or pay as you go

In addition to the above choices, the programme also offers a broad range of subject specializations. So, a student can decide to qualify in a particular field or study several areas, depending on his/her own specific requirements, be it to enhance one’s career or for intellectual stimuli.
