Online Legal Practice (Intellectual Property)
Rapid globalisation has fostered the demand for professionals who can master the challenges of working in an environment where business meets law. Combining taught modules on legal and commercial topics, our online LLM opens many doors. With a strong focus on employability and the production of client-facing documentation, the Master of Laws (LLM) in Legal Practice will equip you with practical skills you can take with you directly into the workplace.
