Masters of Laws 2017 in Nottingham United Kingdom. Dual LLM Corporate and Insolvency Law/European and Insolvency Law Nottingham Law School and Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands have become partners to offer an exciting and innovative dual Masters in Law degree. At the end of one year of study, successful students will be awarded the LLM Corporate and Insolvency Law from Nottingham Law School and the LLM European and Insolvency Law from Radboud University. Programme This dual LLM programme is designed for students who wish to develop their understanding and knowledge of Corporate, Insolvency and European Law for a legal career with a strong European and international focus. The modules taught at both campuses are presented in English, and students will enjoy the benefits of being taught by experts from both the Nottingham Law School and the Faculty of Law at Radboud University. Lecturers from both universities will be at the Radboud University campus at the start of the course to welcome students, and to ensure that they quickly settle into student life. The programme is taught at the Radboud University campus in Nijmegen during the first semester from September to the end of December. Students then move to the Nottingham Law School City site in Nottingham, and are taught there until early May. The LLM thesis / dissertation can be completed at either campus. Two of the modules on the programme are full year modules and are studied partially at the Nijmegen campus, partially at the Nottingham campus, and partially on-line through the Nottingham Trent University online workspace (NOW). Entry requirements You are required to have one of the following: a Dutch Bachelor's degree (or equivalent, from a research university) in law and knowledge of the basic concepts of international or European Law (as established by the Examinations Board) a UK undergraduate degree in Law (2.2 or above) or, an honours degree in another discipline plus either the CPE (Common Professional Examination) or GDL (Graduate Diploma in Law) conversion qualification a recognised undergraduate degree in law equivalent to either of the above qualifications. International student language requirements In order to study on this programme you need to have a sufficient level of English. Non-native speakers of English, without a Dutch Bachelor's degree or VWO diploma, need one of the following: a TOEFL iBT score of 83 (with at least: Reading 18, Listening 17; Speaking 20; Writing 17) an IELTS score of at least 6.5 a Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) or Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE) with a mark of C or higher. International student visa requirements It is imperative that all students check the visa requirements for studying in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. A visa granted for The Netherlands does not automatically allow applicants entry into the United Kingdom, and vice versa. Students must therefore ensure that they meet the visa requirements of both countries when applying for a place on this dual programme, and must also ensure that applications are submitted in plenty of time before the commencement of modules at each campus. International students will be required to have a valid visa for studying in both The Netherlands and in the UK. As the programme commences in The Netherlands international students will start the programme before applying for a UK tier 4 visa. It is the responsibility of the student to obtain their visas. [-]

LLM Legal Practice This new LLM (Master's in Law) award is for those with professional legal qualifications, for example the BPTC or LPC (or their precursors). Credit points are awarded for these professional qualifications and students can then 'top-up' these points with a dissertation or publishable article to gain this LLM. This course is studied by distance learning. Nottingham Law School is introducing a new LLM (Master's in Law) award for those with professional legal qualifications. Professional legal qualifications (for example, BPTC or LPC or their precursors) will provide evidence of appropriate prior learning and achievement, equivalent to two-thirds of the LLM award. Students will then 'top up' these credit points with a dissertation or publishable article, studied and completed by distance learning, to gain the LLM degree. In the increasingly competitive legal employment market practitioners may find that having an additional qualification, a masters degree, will make them stand out from the competition. The LLM Legal Practice (DL) qualification will not only provide additional evidence of your academic ability but also showcase your knowledge of more specialised aspects of legal practice. The LLM Legal Practice (DL) provides 60 Masters level credits which, when combined with the evidence of academic achievement from the successful completion of the BPTC or LPC (or equivalent), will lead to the award of an LLM. Course The course is equivalent to 600 hours of study and includes a manageable assessment task of either a traditional dissertation or the production of an article of publishable quality. Our course is designed to allow completion of the top-up element over a 4-24 month time period. This would allow students to undertake study immediately following the completion of the LPC or BPTC and complete the course quickly, but also offers more flexible time frames for completing the self-study module. The course is not just for current LPC and BPTC students. Those who have successfully completed the LPC and BPTC (or their equivalent) at any time are eligible for admission. The course will be extremely attractive to practitioners as it also satisfies CPD requirements. Introductory programme The introductory programme includes guidance on research methods, and legal writing. All students will undertake the introductory programme by distance learning. Dissertation In line with our existing LLM courses, students have a wide discretion in the selection of their dissertation topic, subject to the capacity of the Law School to provide expert academic supervision. The Law School has academic staff with wide-ranging expertise across diverse areas of law. However, students are encouraged to consider areas of law that are particularly pertinent to their anticipated or actual area of practice when selecting their chosen topic. The dissertation is 18,000 – 20,000 words in length. Publishable article As an alternative to the dissertation, students can, with guidance from an experienced academic, produce an article of publishable quality. This is likely to be of shorter length than the dissertation, focussing on a particular point of practice or law. Entry requirements Applicants should have successfully completed either the Legal Practice Course (LPC), or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC). Applications from members of other legal professions will also be considered, for example, Patent Attorneys or Trade Mark Attorneys. Legal professionals from other jurisdictions are also eligible to apply English language requirements International and EU students also need to meet our English language requirements. [-]
