The Project-Based LLM allows legal practitioners and recent law graduates to deepen their expertise in a particular field through course work chosen from a range of over 80 electives. Students also complete a Major Research Project designed to reflect their professional or academic interests, focusing on legal or policy issues requiring complex real-world solutions. With advice and guidance from Western Law’s leading legal academics, students can explore in-depth the legal challenges that are most relevant to their work.
