The LLM at Birmingham Law School

With over 100 years of history as a leader and innovator of professional legal education in the UK, Birmingham Law School offers the opportunity to specialise and consolidate your legal knowledge through the Birmingham LLM. 

Birmingham Law School sits at the heart of a world top 100 University, delivering legal education to recent graduates and professionals alike. Through our world-class research and Centre for Professional Legal Education and Research, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a thriving academic community contributing to the development of policy, law and discussion around the world. 

The Birmingham LLM allows students to follow one of our specialist programme pathways, providing the opportunity to develop expertise in new, emerging and integral areas of law or have complete flexibility with our General Law programme. 

I have enjoyed studying a diverse array of legal topics, assessed through different methods, to overall enhance my learning capabilities; and it’s been great to interact and study with such a passionate and enthusiastic cohort of students. Being a member of the Birmingham community comes with endless opportunities and activities. A highlight for me has been the variety of guest lectures hosted by the Law School, with renowned figures and industry professionals.
