Course Introduction

The Specialism in European Union law will be of significant advantage to those who seek to work in professional, public and commercial sectors involving EU law rules and practices. As the influence of the European Union in international governance continues to grow, this specialism should also attract international students seeking to develop a career in research and policy at a global level.

The Specialist LLM in European Union Law provides you with the knowledge, skills and insight required for the practice and application of European Union (EU) law. The City Law School is one of very few Higher Education institutions in the UK offering as broad a range of electives in European Union related legal subjects.

Qualifications required:

  • Applicants should hold a first degree in law, or an equivalent qualification in a related discipline, and must be fluent in written and spoken English. We expect applicants who are not nationals of a majority English-speaking country OR have not successfully completed an academic qualification, at least equivalent to a UK bachelor's degree, which was taught in a majority English-speaking country as defined by the UK Visas and Immigration, to have an overall IELTS score of at least 7.0. Applicants with a first degree in a subject other than law will be considered, but it should be noted that this may restrict the choice of modules where content is dependent on a prior knowledge of law.
