Overview

The Master of Laws degree offers a choice of over 40 topics for either general study or specialised research. It is a very flexible programme, offering participants the ability to study by thesis alone, or by combining short research paper courses and a dissertation.

LLM students develop in-depth expertise in particular fields of legal specialisation, broaden their knowledge in a range of legal subjects, and combine law study with related disciplines. Students get the chance to undertake research under the supervision of expert staff in the School of Law.

UC ranks in the top 150 universities in the world for Law (QS World University Rankings by Subject, 2018).
