You will take one to two courses per year, choosing from a wide range of law options. Not all courses will be offered every year, although some of the more popular options may be offered each year, or more than once each year. We aim to offer between 15-20 courses on a yearly basis.
If you take courses that fall predominantly within one of the specialist areas you can request that your chosen specialism be included in the name of the degree, or alternatively you can pursue your studies towards a general LLM.
You can find the most up-to-date list of optional courses for Executive Master of Laws (ELLM) in the Programme Regulations section of the current School Calendar.
You must note, however, that while care has been taken to ensure that this information is up to date and correct, a change of circumstances since publication may cause the School to change, suspend or withdraw a course or programme of study, or change the fees that apply to it. The School will always notify the affected parties as early as practicably possible and propose any viable and relevant alternative options. Note that the School will neither be liable for information that after publication becomes inaccurate or irrelevant, nor for changing, suspending or withdrawing a course or programme of study due to events outside of its control, which includes but is not limited to a lack of demand for a course or programme of study, industrial action, fire, flood or other environmental or physical damage to premises.
You must also note that places are limited on some courses and/or subject to specific entry requirements. The School cannot therefore guarantee you a place. Please note that changes to programmes and courses can sometimes occur after you have accepted your offer of a place. These changes are normally made in light of developments in the discipline or path-breaking research, or on the basis of student feedback. Changes can take the form of altered course content, teaching formats or assessment modes. Any such changes are intended to enhance the student learning experience. You should visit the School’s Calendar, or contact the relevant academic department, for information on the availability and/or content of courses and programmes of study. Certain substantive changes will be listed on the updated graduate course and programme information page.
