Southampton University

The Law School

Founded in 1952, the School of Law at the University
of Southampton is one of the leading centres of
excellence in law teaching and legal research in the
UK. It is one of only eight schools to be awarded
the highest grade of 5 in the most recent Research
Assessment Exercise (RAE).

As of 2008/9, students are able to choose four (rather than three) subjects from the wide range of options available, and will also complete a dissertation on a subject of their choice.

The school has 36 full-time members of academic staff, more than 500 undergraduate students and approximately 100 postgraduate students.

The Program

In order to obtain an LLM, students can choose 4 subjects (studied from October to June) and write a dissertation on a subject of your choice (June to end September).

Students may register for a General LLM . For the General LLM, a student will select four subjects from the available list and submit a supervised dissertation on a subject of the student's choice. Alternatively students may register for a named LLM stream. For a named LLM stream, a student will select four subjects from the relevant subject option lists and submit a supervised dissertation on a subject of the student's choice.
