LLM: Introduction

The LLM programme is unrivalled in its international, comparative and interdisciplinary approaches and courses.

The LLM at the London School of Economics and Political Science is a leading LLM programme delivered at one of the world's best law schools. It is unmatched in the international, comparative and interdisciplinary approaches and courses that it offers.

The LLM offers the highest quality of teaching in small group seminar settings provided by leading international and UK academics. Our approach to the teaching of law combines views and experiences from different disciplinary traditions and jurisdictions. This ensures that what you learn at LSE Law is relevant to legal study and practice in any jurisdiction. Courses are offered in a broad range of fields including arbitration, human rights, international law, corporate, commercial and financial law.

LSE Law is the UK's number one legal research institution. It is also an exceptionally diverse, dynamic and inspiring place to study. It enjoys a uniquely cosmopolitan student body and plays a major role in the education of lawyers and law teachers from around the world.

The London School of Economics is a world centre for advanced research and teaching with an outstanding reputation. Its students and academic staff are drawn from over 140 countries and about half the student population is postgraduate, making LSE one of the largest concentrations of students undertaking advanced study in law and the social, political and economic sciences.

The LSE Campus is situated in the heart of London, one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. Only a short distance from Europe's financial, legal and cultural centres, LSE stands at the crossroads of international debate, a location that is fundamental to our identity as an outward looking institution with an active involvement in UK and world affairs.

Each year the School attracts many influential outside speakers. Regular events and seminars involving politicians, regulators, practitioners and academics take place to complement your studies. Recent speakers include Bill Gates, Kofi Annan, the Dalai Lama, Sadiq Khan, Shami Chakrabarti and Judith Butler.
