What the school says:


The LLM by research involves writing a 30,000 word thesis on an area of law or legal thought of your choice under the supervision of an expert in your chosen subject area. There are no mandatory taught courses, making this a particularly attractive route to a masters level qualification for those in full time employment or who have other commitments that would make regular attendance at classes difficult.

The LLM by research is suitable for those who are about to complete or who have recently completed an LLB (and who perhaps wish to embark upon a career in legal research or improve their prospects of obtaining a traineeship) or for those who are already in employment. It is also ideal for those considering PhD study as it is a masters qualification based purely on writing a thesis.
