LLM (General) wins Postgraduate Course of the Year in Law 2018

LLM General Award

The Master of Laws LLM (General) at the School of Law, University of Limerick, has won the Postgraduate Course of the Year in Law 2018 at the Gradireland Higher Education Awards.

These awards, now in their seventh year, are the blue riband event for higher education professionals, postgraduate admissions officers and course providers across the island of Ireland. The judges’ feedback on the LLM (General) delivered at UL spoke to the quality of the programme:

‘Excellent course with fantastic stakeholder collaborations and a strong focus on employability’.

The submission for the award was co-authored by Dr Kathryn O’Sullivan (Course Director of the LLM General) and Dr Alan Cusack, School of Law, UL. At the core of this degree’s success, is its accommodation, not only of a diverse suite of highly innovative, research-led law modules (for example, the Law of International Trade Organisations; Policing and Human Rights; Advanced Family Law etc), but also its incorporation of a unique practice-orientated, employer-led, ‘Mastering Your Employability’ (MYE) module.

In short, and as reflected in its most recent award, the LLM Master of Laws (General) postgraduate degree at the University of Limerick is a model of excellence in preparing students for an enriching, challenging and rewarding career both within the legal profession and beyond.
