AAU provides academic guidance and admissions counseling to academically qualified students interested in the self-study University of London LL.M. Programme. The LL.M. program is open to students who have already obtained the first degree; a legal education is not a requirement for study.
The University of London has more than 54,000 students worldwide studying one of more than a hundred different degree, diploma and certificate programs. Former students and alumni include seven Nobel Prize winners, leaders of Commonwealth countries, government ministers, renowned authors, academics, judges, and business leaders. The University of London has an active Alumni Association which offers unique networking opportunities.
To apply for admission, prospective students should have an undergraduate degree equivalent to a UK second class honors, not necessarily in law, and meet the English language requirements.
While LL.M courses will not be instructed at AAU our staff is able to provide program information, guidance, and application information to students based in the Czech Republic regarding the LL.M degree. AAU has also designed a Study Support Package for independent learners.
The LL.M Study Support Package allows local students access to the library, AAU internet access, a quiet dedicated study room one evening a week from 18:00 to 21:00, on the weekends, Saturdays 9:00-17:00 and Sunday 9:00-12:00, and copying and printing services.
The cost of the study support package is 5,000 Kc per semester with the semesters being Fall (September through January) and Spring (February through June) and is available for students local in the Czech Republic. AAU may offer additional services to the LLM students, such as attending/auditing the LLB sessions on offer, individual consultations or tutoring; these are subject to individual arrangement.
The LL.M. program allows students to choose from more than 30 different specializations or to obtain a general studies degree. While being required to undertake only 4 courses during the span of their studies, there are more than 40 different offerings students may select from. Due to the nature of the self-study program, each student may focus upon the area of their particular interest, arrange their studies around their work and home commitments, finish in as little as one year, or spread their studies out over five years.
Upon registration with the University of London students will be provided with course-specific study guides, reading materials, access to valuable legal databases and other library resources, and an online forum for each course. Each course is divided into four modules (A. B, C, and D). Each module will be assessed by a 45-minute unseen written examination. There are no oral exams and no dissertations. Examination sessions are held twice a year, in May and October. Exam sessions may be skipped, however, it must be kept in mind that studies must be completed within the five year period of registration. You can view the relevant University of London fees on their website.
