UCL FACULTY OF LAWS

Master of Laws (LLM) Programme

Taught Modules

The taught modules offered on the LLM programme vary from year to year. Please check the list below for details of the modules running in specific academic years. We make every effort to ensure that every module will be offered as listed below, but modules are subject to change or cancellation. You are therefore advised to check this site regularly for further updates throughout the year preceding entry to the LLM programme.

Students registered on Masters programmes across UCL are welcome to enrol on taught modules from the LLM. Details of modules that are open to students registered on other UCL Masters programmes can be found in the individual summaries below. In the event of a module becoming oversubscribed, priority will be given to Laws students.
