Master of Laws (LLM) Programme

Accreditation of LLM Modules by the Law Society

Practising solicitors attending the LLM course should note their time spent studying on their LLM course for CPD purposes as 'non-accredited study'. Please note that 'Non-Accredited' study can only count for 12 of the 16 hours needed each year.

Students are welcome at the Current Legal Problems (CLP) lectures, which are fully accredited, and make up the final four hours; you should ensure that they use the sign-in sheet in the lecture theatre. You should quote our accreditation code (IU/UCL) on your record and note that the CLPs are accredited with 1 CPD hour.

Many other accredited events are also open to students such as the International Law Association seminars, Constitutional Law Group events and others. .




The application process for the 2014-15 academic session, for entry in September 2014, is now closed.

Information regarding applications for September 2015 will be updated on the website in September 2014.

IMPORTANT NOTICE : Updated 28 May 2014

The Home Office issued an update about the acceptance of ETS tests (including TOEFL). They have now confirmed that Higher Education students applying for a Tier 4 visa may use a TOEFL test taken after 17 April, if a Higher Education Institution is willing to use its academic discretion. For those students entering in September 2014, UCL will continue to accept the TOEFL even if it was taken after 17 April. However, if an applicant still needs to book a test then we recommend that they take an alternative test to TOEFL. Those who have already arranged to take a different test following the previous advice from the Home Office, we encourage you to go ahead with taking the alternative test.

The TOEFL test will continue to be accepted for 2014 entrants who have been asked to take an English language qualification as part of their offer condition, and do not need to apply for a visa to study in the UK.
