What you'll learn

The University of Lancashire provides an extensive Master of Laws (LLM) programme thoughtfully crafted to offer a profound and specialised legal education. Recognised for its demanding curriculum and esteemed faculty, this programme stands as the top choice for both seasoned professionals and aspiring lawyers looking to enrich their legal expertise.

Law is an ever-evolving and progressively intricate field that influences a wide array of professional, commercial, and regulatory domains. Additionally, a legal background is not a prerequisite for pursuing the Master of Laws (LLM) programme. This programme is tailor-made for professionals aiming to broaden their understanding and propel their careers forward.

You will engage in a critical assessment of legal domains and their functioning within domestic, European, and global frameworks. By working on your dissertation, you will develop essential critical analytical and research capabilities that will prove invaluable in various legal environments.

UCLAN's comprehensive e-law library grants you access to a wealth of legal and academic references, spanning both local and international jurisdictions, equipping you with the essential study materials. Moreover, you'll have the opportunity to enhance your employability through the acquisition of supplementary qualifications in alternative dispute resolution, particularly in the fields of international arbitration and mediation.

Mark your academic accomplishments with a graduation ceremony held on the university campus, where you can rejoice in your successes alongside fellow graduates, professors, and loved ones. Embrace this thrilling chance to propel your legal career to new heights.

The programme comprises two phases; the first is the Level 7 Diploma in International Business Law, awarded by Qualifi and delivered by EDVORO. The second phase is the Master of Laws (LLM) Top-Up, awarded and delivered by the University of Central Lancashire through distance learning. EDVORO partners with CEG to promote this programme.
