Our taught postgraduate courses offer specifically tailored LLM and MA degrees, drawing on our extensive experience of research and practice in human rights, commercial, business and trade law.
Studying a Masters degree in the School of Law gives you the opportunity to focus on a particular area of law and acquire the in-depth knowledge and skills needed to specialise in that field.
Postgraduate modules are intensive and taught in small groups by our expert academic staff. You also complete a supervised dissertation project for submission at the end of the course, allowing you to pursue your own research interests.
For those who already hold an undergraduate degree in a different subject and would like to study law we offer a conversion LLB Law (Senior Status) degree. This gives you a comprehensive training and allows you to proceed to the Bar Professional Training Course or the Legal Practice Course.
“Studying in an international environment, surrounded with people from all over the world, was definitely an eye-opening experience for me. Listening to many varied approaches to addressing complexities in different countries, definitely boosted my perception in a way I could not even imagine before. Overall, I would describe my experience at Essex as a life-changing and unforgettable one.”
“The robust and unique multidisciplinary understanding of human rights I gained at Essex has been instrumental in advancing my career. A year after graduation I was offered a job with UNICEF in Georgia as a child protection officer. More recently I have been working with UNICEF Myanmar in Yangon as a child protection specialist, heading UNICEF’s justice for children work in the country.”
