Note that modules are offered in one semester only and timetabling considerations may also restrict choice. Further information on the precise modules available in a given year is available on the LL.M website.
This course equips students with the expertise, skills and attributes which are valuable across a wide range of careers, both within and beyond the legal profession, nationally and internationally.

“Having undertaken my Erasmus year at Trinity, I did not imagine myself studying anywhere other than the School of Law and undertaking the LL.M. (International and European Business Law). This LL.M. programme gave me the opportunity to specialise in the legal fields in which I had significant interest in and write a dissertation on a related legal topic, with clear and helpful advice from my dissertation on a related legal topic, with clear and helpful advice from my dissertation supervisor. During the year, I had the opportunity to meet legal professionals, which gave me a chance to really consider the direction I would like to follow in my future legal profession. The LL.M. was an asset to my future professional career, as I aspire to work in an International Business Law Firm, possibly in Dublin. Not only did I gain a deeper understanding of International and European Business law but belonging to this student community was very enriching, both personally and professionally.”
