Master of Laws is a postgraduate course designed for law graduates and practising lawyers to specialise in a particular area, such as tax, environmental or employment law. Classes generally last one year full-time and 24 months part-time, and students will select the module or area they wish to study and complete a dissertation over the learning period. An LLM qualification will provide graduates with a competitive edge in a crowded job market and offer the chance for a change in direction for those currently employed.
Master of Laws graduates will move into legal or corporate practice and take on management, business, banking, non-governmental organisations, research and teaching roles. Traditional legal roles include lawyer, risk analysis and litigation. A number of LLM graduates also chose to pursue a PhD and continue with further education.
Entry requirements vary for each Irish university, but overseas students will need an IELTS score of 6.5 overall, no lower than 6.0 in each component, and a first or second-class honours degree or equivalent internationally recognised qualification in Law.
