MASTER OF LAWS (LLM)
The University of London Master of Laws (LLM) programme which has been taught for more than 80 years is one of the oldest and largest LLM programmes in the world.
The LLM degree enables students develop interest in many of the major areas of law to which they have been introduced in the LLB or which they become exposed to in the course of their professional career. It affords the opportunity to study important specialised areas beyond the boundaries of undergraduate study.
In addition to the obvious advantage of post graduate qualification, the LLM is particularly attractive to law students who pursue or wish to pursue an academic career as a law teacher and also to those who practice or intend to practice as lawyers in a particular field and who wish to have a firm academic grounding upon which to build practical skills and competence.
And for those who work in law related fields such as shipping, international trade, banking and finance, insurance, arbitration and dispute resolution,etc, possession of in-depth knowledge of the relevant legal principles, undertaking postgraduate studies makes the LLM degree an ideal means for sharpening intellectual skills, enhancing knowledge and improving career prospects simultaneously.
The programme enables students accumulate credits and receive and progress from a POST GRADUATE CERTIFICATE IN LAWS, after passing 5 modules, to a POSTGRADUATE DIPLOMA IN LAWS upon completion of 10 modules and finally receive the MASTER OF LAWS (LLM) after finishing all 16 modules available.
Specialisations are available so that one can undertake an LLM in such areas as International Business, Banking and Finance, Insurance, intellectual Property, Maritime Law, Corporate and Commercial Public International Law, etc. It is possible in view of the modular and cumulative nature of the qualifications to receive a Post Graduate Certificate in one area, say Insurance, then a Post Graduate Diploma in another but related area such Commercial and Corporate Law and finally an LLM in another area, such as International Business. This will greatly enhance the versatility of the individual.
Another advantage of this programme is that Post Graduate study is no longer restricted to only lawyers or holders of an LLB as was essentially the case before now. It is now possible for say a Banker or Insurance Practitioner to obtain a Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma in Laws in Banking and Finance or Insurance or a Shipping Broker. Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma in Laws in Maritime Law etc. Such post graduate study will be of immense value to such individuals and significantly enhance their capabilities. It could also enable people to re-career, in other words undertake a change in career or career goals. It would also be highly beneficial for post-retirement endeavours and activities.
Ultimately, an individual without a Law degree could progress through the Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma in Laws to a Master (LLM)
