UEA's LLM Master of Laws is available for those who wish to pursue a programme of study specifically tailored to their individual interests. Students can combine modules from two or more postgraduate taught degree programmes to effectively tailor-make their own programme, alongside completing regular core modules. The programme places emphasis on small group and interactive teaching, giving students supportive access to the Law School's dedicated team of specialists drawn from both academia and practice.
The LLM Master of Laws is offered over one year full-time, or two years part-time. Students undertake a range of compulsory and optional modules taught by the Law School. They may also, with the consent of the Course Director, choose modules worth up to 40 credits from other postgraduate courses offered by the University.
Building on a long record of teaching at the cutting edge of law and technology, the UEA Law School is home to a strong team of scholars investigating everything from IP enforcement to the rights and risks associated with 'Web 2.0'. The Law School postgraduate student community rarely exceeds 100 each year, as the aim is to offer small group teaching, allowing students to benefit from the knowledge and experience of lecturers who are national and international leaders in their field.
UEA Law School graduates have progressed to a wide variety of successful careers, from private practice in local and international firms to government legal departments and international organisations, from universities to industry and commerce. The Law School also provides an Academic Careers Adviser through the University's dedicated Careers Centre.
