Most law schools have limited places available, so it is important to have a clear idea of which law course you wish to focus on during the application phase. An LLM UK qualification will provide graduates with a competitive edge in a crowded job market, and also offer the chance for a change in direction for those currently employed.
LLM degree graduates will move into legal or corporate practice and also take on roles in management, business, banking, non-governmental organisations, research and teaching. Traditional legal roles include lawyer, risk analysis and litigation. If LLM graduates wish to remain in study, a number also choose to study for a PhD.
A first or second class honours degree, or equivalent internationally recognised qualification in Law, is required, as well as an understanding of the basic principles of public and private law. Other degrees will be considered if substantial legal knowledge and experience can be proved.
Please note that entry requirements vary for each UK university.

I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
