Choosing a Subject Area

Your research proposal for an LLM must describe the field of knowledge you intend to assess and explain why it is worthy of critical analysis. Many aspects described above apply to an LLM by research however, there is not the same requirement as a PhD to produce original research. The field of study is likely to be narrower than for a PhD, given the time and word limits involved.

  • "Ecocide" and how it will affect the British Legal Framework
