It is important to realise that the materials provided are not self-contained but point towards the books, cases, and statutes which you will need to read. Online links are provided via the programme website to various free on-line legal resources which Leicester De Montfort Law School subscribe to, such as LexisLibrary and Westlaw.
It is, nonetheless, important to have access to a good law library. The Leicester De Montfort Law School Law Librarian is available to help throughout the programme.
Full payment of course fees is required before the start of the course or within 30 days of receipt of your invoice.

The programme fees for students enrolling in September 2019 are:
The fee for the Standard LLM is £8,700
The fee for the Accelerated LLM is £9,000
The fee for the Postgraduate Diploma is £6,300
The fee for the Postgraduate Certificate is £3,500
Fees include course materials, tuition costs, access to relevant online legal resources at Leicester De Montfort Law School, the Induction Weekend and further Study Days.
The standard entry requirements for the programme are either a degree in law or another discipline from a UK university or a relevant professional qualification or an equivalent international qualification which indicates an ability to study at the postgraduate level. Whilst some background knowledge of law is useful, a degree in law is not essential.
Your degree should be a minimum of second class, with honours, and above, or the overseas equivalent.
If you do not possess the academic requirements, but do have some work experience in the field you are interested in studying, please contact us for details.
The Core Module will be assessed by written coursework.
Final assessment of the 15 and 30 credit modules and the project is based on the submission of assignments. 30 credit modules have two compulsory assignments, the first assignment is 4,000 words long while the second is 6,000 words long. 15 credit modules have one compulsory assignment of 5,000 words in length.
In both cases you can choose to submit one item in draft for comment before making a final submission.
People study at different rates, but we estimate that you will need to study around 150 hours per 15 credit module, including time spent on assignments.
The modules come in the form of PDF documents via the course website. A hard copy of the module is sent in the post later. The hard copy modules are bound together and sent out as booklets. If you choose the Negotiated Study module, the content may consist of “free-standing” elements of existing 30 credit modules.
Please note that the first set of modules is quite bulky, so please ensure that you provide an address where these can be safely delivered.
The programme is an online programme, so your materials will be available to you through Blackboard (the university’s online learning platform) and you will be submitting your work through this system also.
A supplementary hard copy of the modules will be sent to you shortly after the modules are released online, although delivery dates may vary, so it is advised that you access the material online in the first instance.
For non-UK residents, there is an option to receive the modules by courier at an additional charge of £200 (please note these are the modules you will be studying and not the recommended reading lists).
If English is not your first language, an IELTS score of 6.5 (including a minimum of 5.5 in each component) or equivalent is normally required if applicable.
Where you have previously studied taught modules at postgraduate level, it may be possible to exempt you from parts of the LLM and you could obtain the LLM by studying fewer modules at a reduced course fee. Please note that qualifications awarded more than 5 years old cannot be considered for exemption. For more information, please call +44 (0)20 3377 3512.
It may be necessary for reasons beyond the control of the organisers and the university to alter the line-up of authors, modules or course content, however, every effort will be made to adhere to the published syllabus.
This course will run subject to reaching a satisfactory intake to the course.
