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.

You can submit and receive feedback on assessments over the course of each module. The dissertation is 18,000 - 20,000 words on a suitable topic of your choice and includes one-to-one supervision with a tutor who is an expert in that field. How do I study? The academic year for the LLM courses is split into three parts: two ten-week terms (Term One runs from the beginning of the academic year until the Christmas vacation, Term Two between Christmas and Easter) and the summer period. Full-time students – who complete the course over one academic year – study three modules in each term and complete the dissertation over the summer. Part-time students – who complete the course over two academic years – study three modules across Terms One and Two in each year (six in total), beginning work on researching their dissertation during the first summer period and completing it during the second. On the full-time and part-time modes modules are taught throughout the week. Depending on your timetable you may be expected to attend on more than one day. Modules may exceptionally be rescheduled due to course needs. Seminars are led by academics but will usually require you to carry out extensive guided preparatory work and will often involve short presentations or other contributions. Entry requirements Law graduates You will need a good 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.
