Welcome to the Cambridge LLM website

The Cambridge Law Faculty offers a world-renowned, internationally-respected LLM (Master of Law) programme. The nine month taught course offers highly-qualified and intellectually-outstanding students the opportunity to pursue their legal studies at an advanced level in a challenging and supportive environment. The programme has rich historical traditions and attracts students of the highest calibre from both common law and civil law jurisdictions. It is intended for those wishing to pursue further legal studies after completing their first degree in law, including both recent graduates considering an academic career or intending to practise law as well as those taking a career break and seeking to broaden their intellectual horizons.

The programme runs full time from October to June, and is taught by Cambridge academics, many with highly regarded international reputations. Studying for the Cambridge LLM is an enriching, stimulating and demanding experience. Students often surprise themselves with what they can achieve.

The following pages provide prospective applicants with a brief guide to the Cambridge LLM and its admissions processes. We hope it contains the information you need, and that you are inspired to come and see what we have to offer.
