Best LLM module?


LLM modules: HELP!


Hi All,

Which module should I choose? Does anyone have experience in any type (ie which are the best courses)?

My favorites of the 10 listed on the database include:

EU internal market law (15 c)
Regulation of human tissue (15 c)
Intellectual property law (30 c)

Also, credits-wise, IP is 30 vs the other two, 15 credits each. Does that mean IP is more intense?

I personally like intellectual property law, because the course description sounds fascinating, and it seems like a hot field career-wise. I must choose 30 credits--either 1 30-c course, or 2 fifteen-credit courses.

Tips? Thanks...

Bearing in mind of the job prospects and inadequacy of jobs for traditional lawyers due to the influence of ADR, it worths doing IP. I did it as an optional module at LLM level. It's quite demanding but you will not regret doing it. Good luck!

Hi,

your profile indicates that you are going to pursue an LL.M. in Medical Law etc.

Thus, I assume that you would like to work in that field of law afterwards. Correspondingly, I would choose a module which best fits in with your specialisation. Obviously, this applies to "regulation of human tissue", and probably also to EU Internal Market Law (cp. the ECJ's ruling in Doc Morris etc.). It's difficult to say that about IP law without knowing the particular course description. Of course, patents etc. are extremely relevant in this regard, but IP law (as well as the law of the internal market) covers a lot of topics. Thus, you may risk of spending time on a lot of topics which may be irrelevant to your future work.

This does not mean that you should not choose IP law. However, whatever module you decide to attend, you should watch out that the course which you choose focuses predominantly on issues which are linked to your specialisation. Of course, this does not matter if you want to "think out of the box" and want to attend some additional modules not being relevant to your specialisation.

Ciao
