    Course Summary

    The University of Manchester’s LLM program is perfect for law graduates who wish to truly master one or more legal disciplines. The teaching staff are either highly respected researchers or experienced practitioners in their field, and often both.

    Not only will you receive a firm basis on which to build your own unique approach to the study of law, you’ll be able to pursue your chosen specialty or specialties alongside expert teaching staff. Indeed, your professors will be actively researching the topics you’ll study with them.

    The course itself is very flexible, with almost no fixed ‘core curriculum’. This allows students to plot the course of their own education, becoming either highly specialised in one or 2 areas, or generalists who are highly knowledgeable on a wide range of subjects.

    One compulsory element is the research requirement. It will give you highly marketable legal research skills, and lay the groundwork for your study of your own special interests.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This course is typically delivered over three terms in a single year. 120 credits will be awarded for taught modules. Another 30 credits each will be awarded for two separate research papers, or one research paper and a dissertation.

    There are typically more than 30 different units offered over the course of any one year, so you will be able to select your electives from a wide range of options. Common topics include law and finance in emerging markets, corporate governance, human rights law, intellectual property law, international economic law, EU law, corporate law, the law of international trade or financial services regulation.

    Learning & Teaching

    The University of Manchester’s Law programs rely on lecture and seminar classes for the most part. Each unit will typically be assessed using a coursework essay, an unseen written examination, or a combination of both.

    Your first term will consist entirely of taught modules. Your second and third terms will consist of both taught modules and research papers (or one research paper and a dissertation). One will be delivered in April, and one in September.

    Career Possiblities

    The University of Manchester’s LLM program is heavily research focused. As it is delivered by an institution that is highly respected for its research output, this prepares you well for a career in teaching and research.

    However, there are many other options. Both the private and public sectors rely on a steady stream of highly qualified LLM graduates to support their own legal needs. Other graduates will go directly into practice.

    Entry Requirements for UK and EU-nationals
