LLM European Law: socio-economic law of Europe in a globalising world
This programme is unique in that it links European socio-economic law, a subject of high relevance for legal practice, with the umbrella themes of globalisation and constitutionalism, thus offering a challenging academic perspective.
The course's purpose is to develop knowledge in the various overlapping and intersecting legal orders that operate in Europe, including EU law, WTO law and comparative European law.
Distinctive features of the LLM include specific training in editing an on-line journal, a unique methods component, focuses on comparative law and the opportunity to participate in seminars and lectures at CELLS, thus enabling students to make contact with researchers and proceed towards PhD research.
Graduates will gain skills needed for both trans-national legal practice and professional work for think tanks and NGOs. It will also provide a good start for any academic career focused on European law and legal studies both within the UK and elsewhere.
We run a summer school for students who may have not had the opportunity to study EU law for their bachelor degree. Successful completion of this summer school does not count towards the credits required for the postgraduate degree.
