General Law Masters (LLM): After you graduate

Where this course will take you

Your LLM in General Law is a demonstration of your skills, determination and expertise. Graduates from this course can expect to work in government, international organisations and NGOs, and find roles as in-house legal advisers. Your specialism will help you progress your career in corporate law, financial law, or towards becoming a solicitor or barrister.

For practising legal professionals, an LLM will help you improve and focus your career towards the areas that interest you most. You will expand the scope of your knowledge and use your dissertation as an opportunity to carry out independent research in the area that interests you most.
