Bristol Law School offers a comprehensive range of LLM programmes. The modules available cover a diverse range of legal disciplines that cater for the individual learning needs of students. The LLM programmes overlap with the areas of research interest in the School. At the same time, the importance of teaching is emphasised within the Law Department and the university as a whole.
The emphasis of the LLM course is on independent research, critical reasoning and reflective study. The course involves the opportunity for discussion in the context of seminars, providing the student with the opportunity to develop analytical and reflective skills and postgraduate level expertise. Taught modules are assessed by means of a combination of written assignments and oral presentations. The culmination of the LLM Programme is a dissertation which is an independent research project of up to 15,000 words.
