The LLM degree has been offered by UCC Law Faculty since 1992 and remains a very popular vehicle for postgraduate study at the Faculty. Students may either focus their interest in one area, for example business or international law, or choose from a broad variety of legal subject. The LLM Degree also provides students with the opportunity to pursue a dissertation in their area of interest under the supervision of dedicated and experienced lecturers. The LLM degree provides students with a high-quality, broadly based postgraduate experience where a commitment to academic excellence is combined with a commitment to developing student appreciation of the practical and policy implications of law.
Applicants for the LLM Degree also have the option of registering for a Postgraduate Diploma in Law. Students take 60 credits of taught masters modules from those on offer for the LLM. The Postgraduate Diploma can be completed over 9 months full-time or 18 months part-time. Those who wish to apply for the Diploma should contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for application details.
This shorter programme may be attractive to legal professionals and others who may prefer not to make an initial commitment to a full masters programme. Graduates of the Postgraduate Diploma may further progress their studies by completing a 15,000 word research dissertation and graduating with a Masters in Law (LLM).
