The LLM by Research is primarily made available for those who wish to complete a research degree in one year (full-time) and may be particularly suited to those who already have some practical expertise.
The intended subject of the research should normally be one in which the Law School does not offer a taught Masters degree. Whilst the work is primarily individual, you will be advised to take some research training in the form of appropriate LLM modules or modules from the Faculty Research Training Programme.
Successful applications will contain a viable research proposal, and be focused on our areas of research expertise. Please check our "search for a supervisor" page for details of our staff interests.
