Browse the LLM specialist degrees available in the current academic session and the related qualifying modules for 2020-21.

Please note that specialisms offered on the LLM programme vary from year to year. Specialisms and modules are subject to cancellation and module convenors may change. Applicants and offer-holders are therefore advised to check this site regularly for further updates prior to the start of the programme in September.

Please note: the module descriptions give a clear outline of the content of each module. These module descriptions will be updated following UCL's decision regarding the delivery of the 2020/21 academic year, such as online or face to face, to reflect any potential changes that may occur. UCL is still assessing plans for the next academic year and all current UCL students and offer holders will be made aware when final decisions regarding the 2020/21 academic year are announced.

If you wish to obtain a LLM specialist degree you must select a minimum of 60 credits from the qualifying modules listed in that specialism, plus write your Research Essay in the area of the specialism.
