Applicants to the programme are normally required to hold a 2:1 honours degree (or equivalent) in law or a related discipline (e.g. International Relations) before commencing the course.
In addition, applicants whose first language is not English will be required to provide evidence of proficiency.
The School of Law of the University of Nottingham offers an impressive range of specialist LLM programmes across a variety of areas of law, from international commercial law to criminal justice, from public international law to maritime law.
However, such specialisation is not right for everyone. The general LLM permits students to make whatever choice suits and appeals to them from the full range of over 50 modules offered across all the specialist LLM programmes.
For students for whom variety is indeed the spice of intellectual life, or for whom an apparently unorthodox blend of modules in fact meets their needs perfectly, this is the perfect degree.
A complete absence of restriction on choice allows students, timetable permitting, to combine international sale of goods with international human rights law, or European Community competition law with international criminal law, or international consumer protection with international law on the use of force.
