King's College London (KCL) offers a host of specialist LLM programmes through its Dickson Poon School of Law. KCL's law school is considered to be one of the best worldwide. It currently offers both a general LLM and eight specialist LLM programmes:
- General LLM
- LLM in International Business Law
- LLM in International Financial Law
- LLM in International Tax
- LLM in International Dispute Resolution
- LLM in Competition Law
- LLM in Transnational Law
- LLM in European Law
- LLM in Intellectual Property and Information Law
Upon application, students should initially choose the general LLM programme. Only once accepted and enrolled can the student decide on the specialist programme they wish to take. Students will have the chance to hear from and speak to module/programme leaders at the start of the semester. This will help them decide on which LLM programme to choose.
The LLM courses offered by KCL may be completed in one year when taken full time. However, 2 to 4 years is also an option if taken part time. The tuition and fees are £15,000 per year for full time UK students and £22,800 for full time international students. Those who choose to take the LLM classes part time will pay £7,500 per year (UK students) and £11,400 per year (international students).
As all classes begin in September, applications for 2017 have now been closed (except for those with slots still available). UK and EU nationals may still submit their applications for the September 2017 LLM classes until September 3. Applications may be made from October 1 2017 for the academic year 2018-2019.
