Program Description


University of Derby Online Learning

We've worked with the legal professions, judiciary, prosecution service and police to design an LLM that’s fit for the 21st century, which will provide you with the practical skills required for direct application in the workplace.

Flexibility to tailor your award with specialist pathways

The LLM programme offers a flexible approach in achieving a named award of your choice. Your choice of modules will determine your award title from one of the following:

  • LLM
  • LLM Corporate and Financial Law
  • LLM Commercial Law

An ideal academic qualification for your professional development

If you are a qualified solicitor or barrister, you are legally and professionally bound by your respective bodies, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) or the Bar Standards Board to complete a course of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) each year. By taking our LLM and successfully completing the modules you will meet these professional requirements.

Internationally focused

Our online LLM is internationally focused and attracts individuals from a wide range of legal and non-legal professions, ranging from in-house commercial solicitors, contracts professionals, senior management, human resource professionals, small business owners or those seeking an academic career in law.

You'll have the opportunity to study alongside other students from around the world, tailoring your coursework around different jurisdictions and set within a global context.

Refine your practical skills and see the bigger picture

This online LLM has both a practical focus and a research core enabling you to build up useful skills that can be applied directly in the workplace. The Legal Scholarship and Independent Study core modules will help to develop your research skills.
