You’ll be offered an extensive choice of modules in commercial law, which can lead to specialist LLMs in the following areas:
- Banking and Finance Law
- Comparative and International Dispute Resolution
- Energy and Natural Resources Law (not running 2020-21)
- Intellectual Property Law
- International Business Law
- Technology, Media and Telecommunications Law
If you opt to take a specialism, you’ll have 45 credits of 'free-choice' modules, which can be from any legal field outside your specialism.
Courses are taught in English by Queen Mary faculty, in collaboration with distinguished guest lecturers. The programme and our student community are supported by alumni and several local partnerships.
For many students, improving your command of legal English is a vital part of undertaking an LLM. We therefore run an in-sessional academic and legal English language support programme alongside our LLM course, at no extra cost. It is a tremendous opportunity to focus on your academic writing, research methodology, and critical and analytical skills.
We also offer Introduction to Common Law classes at the start of each semester, which provide valuable insights, particularly if you come from a civil law jurisdiction.
You can also take Paris LLM modules as part of the Flexible Study LLM.

Depending on your module choices, you may incur some additional costs to cover course textbooks, a Navigo travelcard (the Parisian equivalent of London’s Oyster card) and social activities.
It may be necessary to include English translations of documents with your application.
The LLM in Paris programme starts in January and September each year, with exam periods in January and July each year.
You will take 180 credits in total, including a 30-credit dissertation of 12,000 words.
