    Course Summary

    The University of Exeter’s Master of Law (LLM) program is one of the best ways to gain a truly in-depth academic understanding of the law, and to develop a very narrow specialisation - which can be a highly desirable trait from an employer’s point of view.

    Exeter’s LLM program is at once rigorous and flexible, and is intended only for the most ambitious of law students. This course allows students to benefit from the insight and subject matter expertise of some of the most well-known names in legal research. They can essentially construct their own educational journey which addresses their interests, chosen specialty (or specialties) and desired career exactly.

    Graduates often go on to a Doctoral study after achieving their LLM, but many others enter the public, private or not-for-profit sectors immediately after graduation, putting their hard-earned skills and expertise to work in a variety of different industries.

    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

    At the student’s option this can be a one year, full time course or a 2 year course at part time. The breakdown below assumes a 1 year timeline.

    First Term:

    This term is composed of taught content. Students will typically take 2 modules during the first term, each worth 30 master-level credits. If the student is pursuing a specialist degree, one of these modules must be chosen from that specialty.

    Second Term:

    Likewise, the second term also comprises 2 30 credit master level modules, but both should be chosen to comply with the student’s chosen specialisation path, and should inform their dissertation later.

    Third (Summer) Term:

    The third term has no taught content – the student’s time will be fully occupied completing their dissertation. This piece will be approximately 15,000 words in length, and is worth a further 60 master level credits. It will be completed under the supervision of an expert in the student’s field of specialty.

    Learning & Teaching

    During the first and second terms, each module will feature a single 3-hour lecture or seminar. Active discussion and debate is encouraged, and the format of the session will be decided by the academic staff. You will also have the support of a personal tutor.

    Students will also have access to an array of cutting edge research seminars throughout all 3 terms.
