All LL.M. degrees are taught over a period of one academic year. At Trinity College we offer a diverse range of modules, enough to ensure that all our students have their needs and interests catered for. The year is divided into two semesters during each of which students are required to take three modules. Each module is offered in one semester only and involves 22 hours of classwork. Students are required to sit examinations at the end of each semester, in January and May, and to complete a research dissertation over the academic year on an approved theme, which must be submitted on or before 27 June 2014.
Students reading for any taught masters law degree at Trinity College Dublin must study 90 ECTs over the duration of the year long programme. Generally this entails 60 ECTs worth of taught modules and 30 ECTS for the written dissertation. Each module on the LL.M. programmes award 10 ECTS. The ECTS weighting for a module is a measure of the student input or workload required for that module, based on factors such as the number of contact hours, the number and length of written or verbally presented assessment exercises, class preparation and private study time, classes, and examinations. There is no intrinsic relationship between the credit volume of a module and its level of difficulty.In Trinity College Dublin, 1 ECTS unit is defined as 20-25 hours of student input so a 10-credit module will be designed to require 200-250 hours of student input including class contact time, private study and assessments.
