A message from the Director of Graduate Taught Programmes

I am delighted that you have successfully applied for the Master of Laws (LLM) at UCL. This is a great place to undertake advanced legal study: the Faculty of Laws and UCL are consistently ranked among the top elite institutions globally; evidence of the outstanding teaching and research that takes place here.

UCL Laws is a vibrant and lively community consisting of 63 full-time academic members of staff, 40 part-time teaching fellows and 28 professional services staff.

On the LLM you can construct a programme of study from over 90 graduate taught modules, pursue a unique independent research essay and choose to graduate with a specialist degree. During the redevelopment at Bentham House from 2015-2017 teaching will take place across the UCL campus so you will have the opportunity to meet students from across UCL faculties from astronomy to medicine.

There is a wealth of opportunity for graduate students to pursue their interests and talents, academic and non-academic, and to get involved in an array of extra-curricular activities both within the Faculty and in the wider UCL community.

Specific activities for LLM students in the Faculty include taking part in pro bono initiatives, organising activities with the UCL Graduate Law Society, taking part in the prestigious international Law Without Walls (LWOW) programme, mooting and mediation competitions, writing for and editing the UCL Journal of Law and Jurisprudence, taking part in research colloquia, engaging with the Programme for Law Teachers and attending careers events.

The UCL Graduate Law Society plays a vital role within the faculty, and is run by a committee elected annually by the student body. This society and the undergraduate Law Society supplements academic activities by organising career, social and sporting functions during the year. It also provides a programme of talks by eminent practitioners from outside UCL.

It is in conjunction with the societies that the Faculty successfully maintains its strong links with the legal profession in London and elsewhere, and a thriving careers programme supported by our own Laws Careers Consultant & Employer Relations Manager.

I assure you that by joining our community you will feel inspired, supported and confident relating to the law and academia in a richer way. You will benefit from the rich heritage of UCL and learn from students representing over 60 jurisdictions.

We look forward to discovering the contribution that you will no doubt make to it.
