London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)

Course Introduction

The Executive LLM is one of the most innovative and intellectually exciting LLM programmes offered in Europe today. You will take a set of intensive week-long modules over a period of three to four years, delivered by many leading academics in the UK in the field of law. Modules are offered across a broad range of fields including arbitration, human rights and international law, corporate, commercial and financial law, and information technology, media and communications law. This programme is aimed at individuals in full-time employment who are not in a position to take a year-long break from work. It is open to applicants who have had at least three years post-degree work experience in law; this could be in a law firm, government, a company, a non-governmental organisation or an international organisation.

You can choose to pursue your studies either towards a general LLM or towards a subject specialism. If you take courses that fall predominantly within one of the specialist areas you can request that your chosen specialism be included in the name of the degree. The programme is designed for working professionals with a minimum of three years' post-degree experience in legal practice, for example, in a law firm, government, a company, a non-governmental organisation or an international organisation. The programme is recognised as enhancing a wide range of career paths.
