Univ of London- distance learning LLM


Hi Malwina,

Have a look at the LLM Brochure, it lists a series of qualifications you may have in order to get accepted.I believe that you may stand a good chance ( of course, this is my personal opinion ) given the fact that you want to start with the certificate. I am also waiting for a reply.

That is my understanding. I've seen other schools in the UK offer a similar structure.

On the positive side, if you have to drop out, you have something to show for your work.

However, if you earn an LLM, I am not sure why you would add the lesser diplomas/certificates to your c.v. ?

In any event, I decided to enroll and am waiting for my course materials.



Well one of the advantages you pointed out already in that should you drop out of the LLM, you get something at least. And to answer your other question of why you would want to add the certificate/dilpoma to your CV is that in case it is a different specialization, it can add value

I know this is yet another post in my quest for good online LLM.

I think the U of L has a lot of advantages. But having looked at the LLM requirements of the sponsoring colleges, e.g. UCL, there are some marked differences.

1) The grading is based not only on exams but also on assignments and most importantly,
2 A thesis/dissertation

Given this, it seems that U of L is the ONLY online LLM programme that I have seen that allows you to get a degree with exams only.

I really dont know if this makes any difference but I wonder if it is fair to say that is equivalent to what the individual college law schools offer in their LLM programme?

As always, there are pros and cons.

Do the same professors actually grade the same exams? Or is the grading in one or both outsourced to graduate students?

I did a traditional US JD programme and the individual feedback from the professors was very helpful.

Any other comments are welcome. I know there is still plenty of debate about the value of an LLM in general let alone the online versions. Nevertheless. my quest continues.

I think the UofL offers good programs. If you do not want to take a full time LL.M., I believe that also the program offered by the University of St.Gallen offers a good opportunity. It has a flying classromm concept - classes are held in 9 courses lasting each a week - during 18 months. This could be an alternativ to the UofL LL.M.

St Gallen MBL seems to be good but can be expensive.

Thank you. The programme at St. Gallen is pretty impressive. Again, it needs time from work to accomplish this which can be a problem for employed people

I think it is a good program which is offered at St. Gallen. I think the Swiss programs (like for example also the one in Zurich) have pretty much improved in the last ten years. I heard that most people taking hte M.B.L. in St.Gallen do not reduce the work susbtantially.
