The LLM courses at Lincoln Law School are designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop a solid bedrock of knowledge and skills to pursue or further develop their careers, whether they be in legal practice, working in business or industry, working for governmental or international organisations, for non-governmental organisations, or in academia.
For those pursuing legal careers, there has been an increasing demand for lawyers with the necessary knowledge of international law and international business law to provide services to clients both in terms of transactional and litigation work. This is particularly true in the case of commercial law firms undertaking work for multinational corporations and those businesses involved in multi-jurisdictional transactions or disputes.
Similarly our LLM programmes aim to equip students with the necessary knowledge and skills required to conduct transnational work within business and industry. An understanding of the legal issues at stake in terms of international economic law, international trade law, and international investment law provides a grounding for those pursuing careers in firms that either invest or operate in a number of different jurisdictions, or which have strong commercial relationships with investors or customers in other countries.
Many governmental and international organisations such as the United Nations require the expertise of those with backgrounds in international law and international business law. The Law School at Lincoln has a strong group of lawyers with a range of expertise in different aspects of international law and aims to provide a training ground in which lawyers seeking these types of careers can develop.
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
Please note that international applications for taught postgraduate programmes starting in September 2022 have now closed.

At Lincoln, we strive to make sure our student experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. That is why, in response to the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been prioritising face-to-face teaching sessions for our new and returning students in areas where they are the most valuable, such as seminars, tutorials, workshops, and lab and practical sessions. Additional online opportunities have been introduced where they support learning and have been shown to be successful and popular with our current students.
Safety remains a key focus. We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance makes this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
