As part of the largest market in the world, the effects of European law are all around us. Detailed knowledge of the EUs structure and the rulings of the Court of Justice of the European Union is crucial for all practising lawyers. Our LLM programme offers you the chance to acquire a valuable specialism, leaving you well positioned to pursue the many job opportunities where detailed knowledge of European law is required. To meet your, or your employers needs, the programme can also be tailored to suit your own particular requirements and interests. You can, for example, combine your chosen specialist areas, such as competition law, with more general subjects such as European private law.

On this programme you will study in detail key aspects of EU law.
