Continuing Professional Development
Single Master’s Level Courses
We recognise that many legal professionals need to update their knowledge or further their careers by developing a particular skill but without the time to commit to a full Masters programme. To meet this need we have expanded our Continuing Legal Education short course programme – offering busy professionals an alternative to full-time study.
At UCL Laws you can enrol on one of our specialised Master’s modules, offering two hours of tuition each week for either 20 week or 10 weeks courses between October and March.
Continuing Legal Education students do not take the examination at the end of the academic year, and you will receive a UCL Laws Certificate of Attendance is issued at the end of their study period. You will not gain academic credits by studying as a Continuing Education Student. A number of courses are run in the late afternoon or early evening and are, therefore, more accessible for practitioners.
These courses are for legal professionals living and working in and around London. It is not a distance learning programme. If you are interested in studying by distance learning, please see the University of London External LLM programme.
The LLM programme can now be studied flexibly and completely in up to 5-years. If you wish to appy to study the LLM, please see the Masters of Law (LLM) Programme pages.
Note: Continuing Legal Education students are not permitted to transfer to the LLM programme or accumulate passes to count toward the award an LLM degree. Please note that all modules are subject to change or cancellation.
10 weeks or 20 weeks (2 hours tuition per week)
The standard of teaching is at Master’s level on all Continuing Legal Education courses. Applicants should be UK practising solicitors or barristers.
All courses are taught in English.
10 week courses = £1500
20 week courses = £2750
You can either pay via credit card, cheque or we can invoice your firm/you for the course fees. The course fees include tuition, access to the UCL Virtual Learning Environment (Moodle) for course materials, a UCL email account, UCL ID card and reference access to the UCL library (no borrowing).
Access to the library at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies is subject to an additional cost. Visit the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies website for more information.
