The University of South Wales’s LLM course offers you a flexible approach to postgraduate study, where you can tailor your Masters programme to suit your specific needs and career aspirations. You can explore a broad range of legal subjects, including commercial law, international trade law, competition law, employment law and intellectual property law. The LLM (Master of Laws) is suitable for individuals already working in the legal sector, as well as those looking to increase their knowledge in this area. Outside of term time you will have the opportunity to volunteer in the University’s Legal and Financial Advice Clinic. There you will have the chance to put the knowledge and skills you have gained on the course into practice. The Clinic will allow you to engage directly with the legal profession, and work with a number of reputable law firms.
You will study a compulsory module, Research Methods, to develop your postgraduate-level research skills. Other core modules include Rights, Obligations and Remedies, designed to allow you to develop a detailed understanding and appreciation of the role of the civil law. You will also undertake a dissertation concerning law or law-related issues. You will have a choice of four optional modules, covering a range of specialist areas, to complement your core studies and allow you to design a coherent programme of study. This high level of flexibility is of particular benefit if you want to gain Masters-level knowledge and skills, without limiting yourself to a particular area of law. Specialist advice is available when constructing your programme of study.
The University of South Wales, formed by the merger of the University of Glamorgan and the University of Wales, Newport, is one of the largest in the UK, offering more opportunities and better prospects for students. Students will benefit from the University’s growing reputation as a major university for jobs and employers.
