Master of Laws LLM

The School of Law of the University of Nottingham offers an impressive range of specialist LLM programmes across a variety of areas of law, from international commercial law to criminal justice, from public international law to maritime law. However, such specialisation is not right for everyone. The general LLM permits students to make whatever choice suits and appeals to them from the full range of over 50 modules offered across all the specialist LLM programmes.

For students for whom variety is indeed the spice of intellectual life, or for whom an apparently unorthodox blend of modules in fact meets their needs perfectly, this is the perfect degree. A complete absence of restriction on choice allows students, timetable permitting, to combine international sale of goods with international refugee law, or European Community competition law with international criminal law, or international investment law with international law on the use of force.

Careers

Postgraduates in Law find themselves faced with a range of choices when it comes to selecting a career. Some will have a very clear idea from an early stage as to what employment path they wish to pursue, while others may take some years to find the role that is right for them. No matter what your initial choice may be, you will find that the abilities that you have developed during your time at the University of Nottingham will have equipped you well for the demanding and often highly changeable nature of the twenty-first century workplace.

Our postgraduate students move into an extraordinarily wide range of careers following their time in the School of Law.

Many graduates either go into the legal profession or return to their previous legal careers with their experience and prospects enhanced by their experiences on the course. A large number work with NGOs or return to their countries with the skills and experience that will help them add to the future development of that country.

Of course, some students decide to remain in academe and begin a PhD programme, often remaining at the University of Nottingham, and some use the skills they have acquired to teach.
