The Master of Laws (LLM Law) course allows students to choose from a wide range of international and English law specialist subjects, including aspects of commercial and international trade law, intellectual property, and international human rights.

This enables graduates to fill the increasing demand for expertise in these areas and to produce their own 'bespoke' degree to suit their career needs. Further, because many of the modules have an international dimension, the LLM law course has proven to be of great interest to overseas candidates.

"Apart from the brilliant atmosphere and understanding lecturers, I enjoyed the diversity of knowledge, experience and backgrounds of the lecturers as well as students, coming from all over the world. Brunel was a breath of fresh air and I was mesmerised by the interesting and passionate way of teaching…I could think of no better place than Brunel to pursue my PhD" — Playne Kesi, Masters of Law graduate and PhD student
