Founded in 1895, the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is a world-leading university that focuses on law and other social sciences. Among its degree courses is an LLM program that allows students to engage with diverse legal areas or concentrate on a legal field of interest to gain a specialist LLM degree.
The LLM program has a September 2018 intake, and LSE Law School is now accepting applications for the 2018 LLM classes. LSE accepts applications on a rolling basis. Although there are no deadlines set in advance, students are encouraged to apply early as there is intense competition for admission.
