(Law and legal studies)
University of East London evaluation:
Law and legal studies evaluation:
A master’s degree in law is a fantastic way for law graduates to develop a specialisation, or for non-lawyers working in related fields to gain a deeper understanding of legal issues. This LLM pathway is a unique course that allows you to specialise in human rights from a highly practical perspective; the focus on advocacy translates into valuable clinical skills that enable you to put your knowledge of human rights law into practice. You’ll study the core principles of human rights advocacy, rooted in knowledge of the European Convention on Human Rights, developing expertise in an increasingly vital area of law that has implications for individuals throughout the world facing discrimination and persecution. Alongside the optional modules, you may choose to either write a 15,000 word dissertation or conduct a work-based project that will give you valuable experience of dealing with a specific legal issue in detail. The course is perfect for lawyers and law graduates looking for career development, although all of our LLM courses can be studied by students without a background in law, since you will be trained in the necessary analytical and legal skills. As such, the programme will also provide ideal training for paralegals, journalists, NGO and charity workers, policy advisors, consultants, lawyers, those working in business and finance, or anyone who will benefit from a legal education in their career.

These cover everything from getting a bank account or registering with a doctor to finding the cheapest way to phone home and where to buy food. The student union offers representation, support and advice to all students at the university as well as organising activities, clubs and societies for outside the classroom. There are some fifty different clubs and societies available covering all aspects of life. These include sports, performing arts, interest groups as well as volunteering projects and those based around a specific culture or faith. Students can even apply to start their own societies when they and others share an interest not already covered by a group. Sports teams take part in the BUCS leagues against other colleges and universities and are managed by UEL Sports.
