Master of Laws LLM

Overview

The LLM at UCLan Cyprus will enable students to focus on a range of very different subjects of use in their professional careers but also specialise in a range of exciting fields of law for those
preferring a narrower focus. By introducing new, special option modules, five areas of concentration have been developed in the fields of:

> International Energy Law

> European Union Law

> Law and International Security

> International Business Law

> Financial and Commercial law

The LLM (Master of Laws) is available to students from both a legal and non-legal background. Classes are taught during the late afternoon and evening. The course does not have any examinations, but is assessed through written assignments and a Dissertation. Emphasis is placed on private research and study, assisted by the University’s outstanding law resources and databases. Therefore, class contact time is limited; reflective of a desire to offer a world-class course of interest to the talented, serious and dedicated student only, whilst providing the necessary flexibility for those juggling other professional and personal commitments.
