Nottingham Law School provides an LLM (Masters in Law) award through distance learning to “top-up” professional legal qualifications or experience.
The LLM International Legal Studies is available to individuals who have either undertaken and passed the UK Legal Practice Course (LPC), the Barristers Training Course (BTC), their precursors, equivalent professional certifications in non-UK jurisdictions, or the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme certification (QLTS).
This course is equivalent to 600 hours of study and includes a manageable assessment task of either a traditional dissertation or the production of a focused article of high quality. Please note that this is course includes a compulsory three day residential study period. The expectation is for students to be autonomous and motivated in the way that they work and to access supervision when they need it.
This course is designed to allow completion of the top-up element over a recommended one-year period, with an option to continue for a further year. This would allow students to undertake study immediately following the completion of their professional practice qualification (e.g. LPC or BPTC) and complete the course quickly, but also offers more flexible time frames for completing the self-study module while already in professional practice working full-time.
