Derby University Law School is known for its advanced facilities, outstanding teaching, amazing opportunities for networking and high employability rate for its graduates. It is clearly a great choice for further legal education. With its newly built home at One Friar Gate Square, located at the heart of the city of Derby in UK, LLM students are assured of state-of-the-art facilities besides world-class academics.
Currently, Derby Law School offers a General LLM program with specialist pathways. This means that students may later opt to concentrate on any of the following specific legal fields:
- Commercial Law
- Corporate and Financial Law
- Intellectual Property and Information Technology Law
- International Protection of Human Rights and Personal Freedom
The LLM program is open to those with prior law degrees as well as non-law graduates. It is taught using a modern approach in a global context, where assignments and coursework are tailored according to the student's preferred jurisdictions. It may be completed within one year if taken full-time or two years, part-time. The LLM program has two intakes each year, i.e., January and September.
Unfortunately, applications to the January 2018 classes have been closed and those who will submit their applications will be considered automatically for the September 2018 intake. There are cases where late enrollment is allowed if not much has been missed from the class yet. However, this will be completely at the discretion of the academic. Applications may either be submitted directly to the Law School or via the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). Those who will require visa and will apply for funding and scholarship are encouraged to apply early.
