Study type Taught


Develop critical and in-depth knowledge and understanding of contemporary legal issues and engage with real world problems on our LLM Law programme. This LLM Law is ideal if you are looking for a general progamme of postgraduate taught study – you will undertake research training, specialise in certain subjects, and complete a dissertation researching your chosen field in depth.

Teaching will be by expert academic staff and offer a blended and flexible approach, including on-campus delivery, with on-line support through our Digital Learning Environment.

Study modules in Legal Theory and Legal Research Methodology in the first semester, followed by a choice of electives in the second semester, deepening knowledge in key areas or developing expertise in new ones. You will complete the programme with a Dissertation, an in-depth and individual exploration of a legal issue of interest, assisted by a member of the academic Law staff.

You will have opportunities to get involved in extra-curricular activities, such as research seminars, external speakers, and publish in our Plymouth Law Review. You will also be invited to join our excellent Student Law Society to participate in activities such as networking events and competitions including mooting and debating. You are also welcome to volunteer to work in our multi award winning Law Clinic, offering pro bono legal advice and representation to the community.

Graduates are likely to find this qualification useful to deepen and widen their legal knowledge, in preparation for moving on to the vocational qualifications or indeed after having completed one. It is also useful for those considering going on to Doctoral research. We also offer the programme on a part-time basis for those already in the world of work and looking to expand their qualifications.

Join our LLM and gain both a relevant and advanced understanding of the law and the skills to strengthen your competency as a practitioner.
