Course summary This course provides you with the foundation subjects required to obtain a Qualifying Law Degree along with the opportunity to spend a year of study in one of our partner universities in Europe, gaining knowledge of other legal systems, experiencing another legal culture, enhancing your European language skills and developing international links. A law degree is seen as a valuable asset by a variety of employers, as is knowledge of another European legal system and another European legal language. This course will prepare you for a range of legal careers including practice as a barrister or advocate, solicitor, clerk, officer of the court or legal executive. Our graduates also pursue careers in legal interpreting, the Civil Service, international organisations, NGOs and local government. When you apply you will need to demonstrate an aptitude for European language study, but this need not necessarily take the form of a formal qualification. Depending on your language skills, while abroad you may study in English or in another European language. Student mobility takes place under the Erasmus+ scheme. Alongside the foundation Law modules necessary for a Qualifying Law Degree, you will study a European language in Year 1 and 2 (Credit Levels 4 and 5) to prepare for study in another European country. In Year 2 you will also study a specialist module on Civil Law and Legal Systems, to gain an understanding of civil laws in view of the year abroad.

Course summary The course is intended for anyone wishing to demonstrate a commitment to contentious law in public and private international and commercial legal contexts. The taught part of the programme includes modules which reflect the three main forms of the dispute resolution process, namely adjudication (litigation and arbitration), alternative dispute resolution (ADR – principally mediation), and negotiation. This course differs from the International Commercial Law LLM course which is primarily concerned with non-contentious aspects of commerce (modules include competition law, trade, and insurance). Class sizes are, in general, quite small, and you will be able to mix with students on other Masters courses at Westminster Law School. Course structure ... [-]

Course summary

This course balances the best of a rigorous, traditional legal education with a contemporary perspective. Our areas of specialisation address today’s most important business and legal challenges, including the study of commercial relationships in the international arena, the role and impact of electronic commerce, and the gradual harmonisation of international commercial law.

This Master is not merely about what you learn in the classroom, it is also about actual practice in today’s world of globalisation and international commerce. That is why the LLM provides, in addition to a strong academic dimension, a concentrated, real-world-oriented legal education.

Course summary

If you want to practise as a solicitor in England and Wales you will need to complete the Legal Practice Course (LPC) – the vocational stage of training that bridges the gap between academic studies and life in a law firm.

Westminster Law School has a well-established reputation for the delivery of solicitors' vocational training and our LLM in Legal Practice (which incorporates Stages 1 and 2 of the LPC) equips you with the skills and knowledge needed to be a successful 21st-century lawyer.

Distinctive features of the course include:

Highly experienced and approachable lecturers who are all qualified solicitors or barristers. Small, interactive group work, allowing you to benefit from individual guidance and help. All sessions are set within a balanced timetable to replicate the tasks undertaken in practice. A broad range of Stage 2 electives, reflecting areas of practice from high-street to city firms. The opportunity to undertake real client legal work under the supervision of tutors working in the Student Law Centre. The focus is on experiential learning through reflection, analysis and planning. A mentoring scheme which pairs you with mentors working in an area you are interested in. Our mentors are predominantly former Westminster LPC students who are now working in an area of legal practice. ... [-]
