Our European Law LLM offers a broad perspective on the governance of Europe and examines the role of its institutions in the global legal order. You will develop specialist knowledge of the law of the European Union as well as the intergovernmental Council of Europe and European Court of Human Rights. We will address the substantive laws these institutions have adopted. You can tailor your LLM to your interests and career goals by choosing from modules on a variety of topics such as European trade, how the single market works, and what the impact of Brexit will be. We have specialist expertise and are well connected with institutions such as the European Commission. You are taught by experts in the academic world, but also by professionals from these institutions. With an advanced law degree from the University of Nottingham, you will graduate with all the knowledge, practical skills and confidence to pursue your career goals.
You will complete a minimum of 90 credits of specialist optional modules. The remaining 30 credits can be chosen from the full selection of optional modules available on the LLM programme. You will also undertake a 60-credit dissertation. Guidance and support on choosing a European law dissertation topic and designing your project will be provided through bespoke workshops and one-to-one support.
You will be assessed by exam or essay, or a combination of both. Assessments take place at the end of each term. Practice assignments, guidance on exam techniques, time management workshops, and one-to-one legal skills advice sessions are offered throughout the year to prepare you for these assessments.
