Legal Practice LLM

Legal Practice LLM - a City University degree programme

LLM in Legal Practice focuses on the professional practice and understanding of the legal practice. The course enhances possibilities of employment.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Applications for this LLM conversion course may only be made by students who have registered to take their full LPC with The City Law School within the last five years. It is not possible to apply for the LLM conversion before registering for your LPC, but we provide places for all students who put forward dissertation proposals of a sufficient quality.

There are two application rounds each year, one between October and November (for a start in March) and one from April to June (for a start in September).

If you are not from the European Economic Area / Switzerland and you are coming to study in the UK you may need to apply for a visa or entry clearance to come to the UK to study. /p>

The way that you apply may vary depending on the length of your course; there are different rules for:

  • Students on courses of more than 6 months
  • Students on courses of less than 6 months
  • Students on a pre-sessional English Language course

Please note: If you require a Tier 4 student visa to study in the UK, you cannot undertake any City University London courses on a part-time basis.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

The Legal Practice LLM course has been developed to enhance the employability of its graduates. Students who have a training contract can use the dissertation to demonstrate commitment to an area of practice. Students seeking a training contract or pursuing an alternative legal career can use the qualification to strengthen their CV.

Training Course Content

Students are asked to make a written proposal for their dissertation. This is an opportunity to undertake research in an area of their choice related to legal practice, procedure or legal skills and is required to demonstrate originality.

The choice is wide but your proposal could include:

  • A critical consideration of an aspect of practice in a specialist area, such as the use of alternative dispute resolution options in commercial cases
  • An analysis of how a particular skill is developed and applied in legal practice, such as techniques in questioning a client or a witness
  • A topic linked to work experience or pro bono work

Previous students have worked on a broad range of topics including the implications of European free movement, cultural attitudes to domestic violence and ADR in commercial cases.
