LLM

LL.M. programs vary in length, value and quantity. The regular program is one year of full-time article or two to three years of part-time study. Students often take their courses to either specialize in a particular field, such as international law, or create a custom course of study to suit their personal interests or professional needs.

An LLM (Master of Law) is an advanced law degree that helps prepare students with specialized legal training. Curriculums often combine research, coursework, and a thesis. LLM programs often take one to two years to complete.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

England is the largest of the four "home nations" that make up the United Kingdom. It is also the most populous of the four with almost 52 million inhabitants (roughly 84% of the total population of the UK).
