The LLM combines a set of foundational core modules in law and society with a flexible choice of electives. Studying the LLM supports a deep understanding of the relationship between law and society, provides training in innovative methods and the acquisition of transferable skills, and promotes genuine interdisciplinarity. 

We offer two pathways for the LLM that cater for different career paths:

Pathway One offers a balance between core foundational modules and wide selection of elective modules.

Pathway Two is a research methods intense pathway for students who intend to pursue a PhD and intend to apply for PhD funding.

Pathway Two of the LLM in Law and Society is recognised as fulfilling the requirements of the Economic and Social Research Council’s (ESRC) postgraduate social science research training and development and as the first year of 1+3 awards made by the ESRC North West Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership to students registered at Keele University.
