Why Study a Taught LL.M. Programme at Newcastle?

Students decide to undertake a taught LL.M. for many different reasons such as to study a specialised or new area of law, to improve job prospects, to move into law from e.g. economics or the sciences, or in preparation for a research career.

Each of the distinct LL.M. programmes consists of 180 credits made up of compulsory and optional modules, including a dissertation on a chosen subject. Modules are assessed by exam and/or coursework.

During your postgraduate studies here, you will acquire valuable transferable skills for your future career - our graduates have a good record of finding employment in international organisations, non-governmental organisations, international corporations and businesses and in university teaching and research.

As expected of such a research-active environment, many of the school's staff and postgraduates participate in multi-discipline University Research Centres.

You can study our programmes full time for one year, or part time over two years. Unfortunately, these programmes are not available by distance learning or online.

All our programmes are suitable for non-law and law graduates alike.
