PGT Induction 2020

PGT Induction 2020

Welcome to the Law School!

Students attending a Law lecture

We hope to be able to welcome you in person at induction, but as you will appreciate the academic year 2020/21 is going to be rather different from previous years. Despite this, we hope that you will have a chance to meet your fellow students and the lecturers who will teach you either in person or virtually.

We welcome students from law and non-law disciplines and from the UK and abroad. It is this rich mix that makes the taught LLM at Newcastle Law School a special and unique experience for staff and students. On these web pages you will find details about the programmes, short synopses about the different modules on offer, and a bit about the staff who will be teaching you, especially the research that they are engaged in which underpins their teaching on the LLM.
