Master of Laws (LLM)

The LLM (Master of Laws) is an internationally recognised postgraduate law degree, comparable to an MBA in business and management. Law students and professionals frequently pursue an LLM to gain expertise in a specialised field of law, e.g. tax law or international trade law. Many law firms prefer job candidates with an LLM degree because it indicates that a lawyer has acquired advanced, specialist legal training and are qualified to work in a multinational legal environment.

The LLM is a distance learning degree offered by Intercollegiate University of London. Studying by distance learning allows you to fit your studies around your home and work commitments.

The awarding body for this programme is the University of London.

[+] A Message from the Director

Law plays an increasing role in all our lives. As such, everyone who wishes to take a leading place in society will benefit from postgraduate legal studies. Advanced study of law has become a necessary key to open the doors of success in legal work. But it also greatly assists outside the strictly legal world, by strengthening intellectual skills, analysis and discipline of mind.

The Postgraduate Laws programme is aimed at providing the tools necessary for success in all areas of life. It is very flexible and well adapted to the needs of people who study away from a full time university, juggling work, family and social commitments. A great range of courses has been introduced and many more will follow, suited to the interests and needs of people from a range of backgrounds. We hope you will enjoy your studies with us.
