Develop your expertise - Masters' Level Courses

We recognise that many legal professionals need to update their knowledge or further their careers by developing a particular skill but without the time to commit to a full Masters programme. To meet this need we have expanded our Continuing Legal Education short course programme – offering busy professionals an alternative to full-time study.

At UCL Law Faculty you can enrol on ONE of the specialised Masters courses, offering two hours of tuition each week for either 20 week or 10 weeks courses between October and March. Continuing Legal Education students do not take the examination at the end of the academic year or other assessments. A UCL Laws Certificate of Attendance is issued at the end of their study period. A number of courses are run in the late afternoon or early evening and are, therefore, more accessible for practitioners.

These courses are for legal professionals living and working in and around London. It is not a distance learning programme. If you require a distance learning programme please see the University of London External LLM programme.

The UCL LLM can now be studied flexibly and completely in up to 5-years. If you wish to gain an LLM, please see the Masters of Law (LLM) Programme pages.

Note: A CLE student is not permitted to transfer to the LLM degree or accumulate passes and then apply to be awarded a degree. Please note that all modules are subject to change or cancellation.
