The LLM allows students to develop their own programs of study reflecting individual and professional interests. Because of the flexibility inherent in program delivery, students are able to plan well in advance so as to ensure they meet their attendance and assessment requirements. New courses are introduced annually into the LLM to maintain the contemporary relevance of the program in a fast moving legal environment.
