The UK is the home of Common Law, and traditional universities such as the University of Birmingham, carry a powerful international reputation leading to enhanced job prospects.

Our LLM programmes are popular with Indian students thanks to our flexible pathways and wide range of optional modules and in particular, our specialist modules on international environment and energy.
