Our LLM will help you develop professional skills including logical reasoning, critical analysis, research and independent judgement, along with an understanding of the complex interplay between infrastructure, content, competition, social policy, punishment and trade in the international arena, and a greater capacity for legal communication.
These skills will prepare you for international practice and academic research at the highest level but are also transferable to a range of other intellectually demanding roles, such as working for international NGOs and other agencies, or public service.
