LLM Masters of Laws: European Law

Overview

This specialism is designed to give students the opportunity to study the constitutional issues which arise from the concept of the European Union, including law making and the relationship between the EU and Member States.

We provide modules which examine the substantive law of the EU and the way in which that law has been implemented in English law. We also provide an optional study trip to visit the institutions of the EU.

Students wishing to specialise in an area of law by following one of our dedicated pathways will also benefit from having that pathway named on your degree certificate, highlighting the specialist knowledge and experience you have in this field.

Students wishing to obtain a specialised LLM must complete three 30-credit modules in your chosen specialism, and must write a dissertation worth 60 credits in that subject area.

Modules in this specialism are regularly updated to remain topical and may include:

LLM European Law

Coming to Exeter for my LLM degree was a deliberate and easy decision. The Law School has an excellent academic reputation in the UK and worldwide and provided several options for specialisation. The programme has given me a truly different perspective on European law and the implications it has with national legal orders as well as with politics. This thorough understanding was helpful for my following legal exam in Germany and still is for the doctorate thesis I am currently working on.
