Entry requirements

The usual qualification for entry to the LLM programme is a degree in law, or a degree with a substantial law content, normally of at least upper-second class honours (or equivalent).

We consider every application on a case-by-case basis and anticipate that some applicants will be practising lawyers who have qualified either in France or their home jurisdiction and will have legal work experience, which will also be taken into account.

Non-law graduates may be considered on the basis of exceptional professional experience that directly relates to specialist LLM taught courses.

For full information on entry requirements, including application deadlines and English requirements, please visit the Queen Mary degree webpage.
