The LLM in Taxation and Investment is designed to cater to students and individuals looking to gain specialist knowledge and qualifications that will cater to a growing demand for multi-qualified cooperate lawyers in a very diverse and local and international economic driven market.
The LLM (Master of Law) is an 18 month (3-Semesters) taught programme with enrollments taking place twice a year – in January and June. The LLM, as a master’s degree, is intended for those who wish to pursue further legal studies after completing their first degree in law. This includes those who are considering an academic career or intend to practice law. The advanced nature of the LLM is reflected in the fact that the programme is organised and taught separately from the undergraduate law degree.
LLM students take five courses, each most commonly assessed by means of a three-hour written examination at the end of the LLM year although students may elect to write an 18,000 word thesis in lieu of the written examination for one course only subject to prior formal approval of their dissertation topic.
