Birmingham - Full Profile

The University

The University of Birmingham has been welcoming students since 1900, and is one of the UK's top twenty universities. It is currently home to over 7,500 postgraduate students from 150 countries.

The Law School

Birmingham Law School is ranked in the top 100 Law Schools in the world and in the top 15 in the UK. At the heart of our school is a strong faculty of academic lawyers who are leaders in their fields. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework confirmed that 96% of our research is judged to have global impact and these are the staff you'll be taught by and research alongside. These results underline the School's strength across the legal curriculum, the top-class teaching we provide, and the extent of our contribution to policy making and our understanding of the modern world.

The Program

Birmingham's Law programmes are designed to allow in-depth study of important legal topics, enabling you to develop significant expertise which will enhance your career prospects. You will be encouraged to demonstrate originality in the application of knowledge, together with a practical understanding of how research techniques are used to create and interpret knowledge.

Our General LLM is ideal if you wish to gain Masters-level knowledge and skills without restricting yourself to just one particular branch of law. The programme provides one of the widest ranges of options in the UK with nearly 50 modules available, enabling you to create a unique degree tailored to your future career aspirations.

We also offer a number of LLM programmes looking at specific legal topics: Commercial Law; Criminal Law; International Commercial Law; and International Law: Crime, Justice and Human Rights.

All of our taught programmes follow the same structure:
- In part I of the programmes, you take six 20-credit modules; your module choices will depend upon the programme you decide to follow. Assessment in those modules, by essay or formal examination, is in May and June.
- In part II of the programmes, you research and write a 15,000-word dissertation on a selected topic of law under the supervision of a member of staff.

All of our modules are taught in small-group seminars, allowing equal opportunities for class interaction to all students.

Further details about the LLM programmes, including full module descriptions and student profiles, can be found online at www.birmingham.ac.uk/llm
