It will interest non-law graduates with careers in the legal field to know that the University of Law in London offers two LLM programs designed specifically for students without prior law degrees. Acquiring any of these programs will allow them enhanced legal knowledge that could boost their professional careers.
The origins of the University of Law can be traced back to 1876 when the prestigious tutorial firm Gibson & Weldon was first established. Today, the University is one of the longest-established specialists in providing legal education in UK. Part of its offerings are two full-time LLM programs, as follows:
- LLM Legal Practice - Conflict Resolution
- LLM Legal Practice - Intellectual Property
In creating these degrees, the University of Law recognizes the importance English Law plays in commercial transactions and conflict resolutions in international business, regardless where the parties are located or where the dispute arises. Both programs has to be taken full time over one year, divided into three terms. The LLM in Conflict Resolution is done in collaboration with Webster Vienna Private University (WVPU). This means that attendance may be made either in the University of Law's London Moorgate campus or at WVPU.
Both programs have two intakes for 2018, i.e., March and October. Applications are now accepted online directly to the University of Law website. Submissions will be considered on a first-come-first-served basis until the program is full. The degree awarded upon graduation from these LLM programs is internationally recognized.
Prospective LLM students with busy careers will even be more interested to learn that both LLM programs may also be taken online. This will allow students greater flexibility as they can take the degree regardless of their location. The online LLM programs have two intakes for 2018, i.e., January and July, and applications are also on-going.
