The LLM (Practitioner) is an innovative masters degree course developed collaboratively between the Faculty of Law, UCC and the Law Society of Ireland. The course aims to help practicing legal professionals gain an internationally recognised masters degree in a flexible manner, individually tailored to their interests. The course can be completed over a minimum of 12 months full time or a maximum of 36 months part time.
Students complete 90 credits of law, over a minimum of 12 months full-time or a maximum of 36 months part-time. This requires the completion of modules to the value of 60 credits, including a compulsory clinical practice module. The remaining 30 credits are awarded for the successful submission of a minor dissertation to be completed under the supervision of an academic member of the School of Law.
