The LLM Media Law, Policy and Practice degree has been designed to provide professional practitioners and graduates, in Law or other disciplines, with expert knowledge and a firm grounding in the concepts of media law and the regulation of media communication. This Master's degree draws on the University of East Anglia's international strength in interdisciplinary and comparative approaches to media law, policy and practice.
The LLM Media Law, Policy and Practice is offered over one year full-time, or two years part-time. Students undertake a range of compulsory and optional modules taught by UEA 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. This degree also offers an optional Research Methods Training component.
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.
This degree will particularly appeal to UK and International graduates who want a career in the media or who wish to build on their professional expertise and develop their understanding of the role of media law in private, public or corporate sectors.
