Perhaps you would like to study Law, but you haven’t yet managed to find the course that ‘feels’ just right for you. The University of Hertfordshire’s LLM in Law is the solution you have been looking for! It is designed for ultimate flexibility and focus, to fit your own unique needs, interests and aspirations.
For the LLM in Law you will study four modules of your choice, from a range of 20 that are on offer (as long as they do not form an already existing pathway). This flexibility will enable you to combine your particular interests and specialisms, to tailor your course according to your dreams and ambitions.
Naturally, as you would expect from the University of Hertfordshire, all our modules are taught by specialists in their field, and are supported by up-to-date, cutting-edge research and practice, so you can be sure that your studies will be relevant to your chosen future career. Innovative, active teaching methods and practical, real-world examples will deepen your understanding and equip you with the skills you need to be a real asset to your future employer!
The University of Hertfordshire is known for its strong links with industry, so you can be sure that not only will the teaching you receive be of the highest quality, but it will also be completely up to date and informed by current practice – vital in the fast-moving legal sector.
The first-class teaching is supported by real-world, hands-on exercises and discussions, to consolidate and deepen your learning and give you the intellectual, transferable, interpersonal and practical skills and experience you need to follow a career in the private, commercial sector, academia or research. The flexibility of module choice means you can build your course entirely as you wish, according to your particular interests or career choice. The ability to build your own qualification means you can be as broad or as specialised as you wish to be – it’s entirely up to you!
This Programme is validated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority for Continuing Professional Development purposes.
Choosing your own modules leaves the field wide open for you to tailor your studies according to your desired career path. You may wish to pursue a future in the private or the public sector, as an in-house lawyer in a specialised industry, in academia or even in research. The possibilities are endless!
All of our Law modules are taught by specialist practitioners in their fields, and supported by group work, discussions, debates, and practical sessions to consolidate your learning and develop those vital skills of persuasion and negotiation, leadership, teamwork and presentation. Independent study is also crucial, to deepen your knowledge, and will be supported throughout your course.
Assessment is carried out via a combination of coursework, written assessments and practical tasks, depending on the modules chosen. A peer support and mentoring scheme is also available, to help students adapt, and to further enhance the development of those essential skills and abilities.
