In order to quality for one of the School’s specialist degrees, students must take the equivalent of three full courses in that specialist subject area, including the completion of their dissertation in that area. Students preferring to select without specialisation will be eligible for the general LLM (Master of Laws).

Teaching is by seminar, mostly by lecturers in the School of Law. Some seminars are conducted by visiting academics and by officials from government departments or international organisations.

Assessment is conducted by one of various schemes: either a combination of assessed essays and examination; or by means of assessed essays or examination only. Candidates are then required to write a 45 page dissertation in their selected area of specialism.
