Please note that the credit framework for the LLM is changing from 22.5 credit modules to 15 and 30 credit modules for the academic year 2019-20. This will not affect the overall credits that you take for the LLM which is still 180.
Insurance is a key part of commercial law and practice. It is an enormous industry: in the UK it is second only to banking in terms of the number of employees and the revenues generated. London is one of the world’s leading centres for the industry, and, as well as hosting the head offices of many insurance companies, it is home to the Lloyd’s insurance market.
The LLM in Insurance Law was established by a leading expert in the field, Professor Philip Rawlings, with the aim of filling a significant gap in the current academic and professional training market. The programme will equip you with the knowledge, skills and practical tools needed to gain a thorough understanding of insurance law, practice and regulation.
Queen Mary University of London was the first UK university to offer a specialist LLM in Insurance Law. Insurance law modules have also proved popular among students taking other specialisms.

Course programme

Structure

The Master of Laws (LLM) is available to study full-time for one year or part-time for two years.

Each of the LLM programmes follows a common format: you will take 135 credits worth of taught modules which may be assessed by essays or examinations (see module overviews for full assessment details and dates) and thereafter you work on a 15,000-word dissertation worth 45 credits (submitted mid August). You are required to balance your taught modules equally across the two teaching semesters – a full explanation of this process will be available during induction and before module selection.

What differs from programme to programme is the range of modules that you are required to choose from. If you wish to take an unrestricted range of modules and any approved dissertation topic you should apply for the Master of Laws.

Induction and choosing your modules

We run a comprehensive two-week induction period that includes an overview of the programme and advice on module selection as well as a range of other vital information sessions. You do not have to select your modules until you have had the opportunity to listen and learn about them in greater detail during induction. More detail of the induction programme will be made available online by early September each year.

LLM Year Planner

The LLM Year Planner gives you an idea of the structure of the programme and key periods for assessment and exams.

Full-time

Undertaking a masters programme is a serious commitment, with weekly contact hours being in addition to numerous hours of independent learning and research needed to progress at the required level. When coursework or examination deadlines are approaching independent learning hours may need to increase significantly.

Part-time

The part-time LLM is essentially aimed at legal practitioners working full-time in the UK. You will attend the same modules and follow the same teaching timetable as full-time students.

The part-time programme is, however, spread over two academic years.

In year one, you will normally complete 90 credits of taught modules. In year two, you will normally take a further 45 credits of taught modules and submit the compulsory 15,000-word dissertation (45 credits). This can of course be changed if necessary, as the dissertation can actually be done in either year. However we would always advise part-time students to take 90 credits of taught modules in their first year if they are timetabled in a convenient slot.

Although not recommended, it is possible for part-time students, who are having difficulties in finding taught modules that fit in with their work timetable, to submit two 45 credit dissertations – one per year. This would then enable you to take only 45 credits of taught modules each year, one per semester.

Part-time students may also wish to consider the LLM Flexible Study programme.

Modules:

To specialise in this area, you must select 90 credits of modules from this list and do your compulsory dissertation in the field of Insurance Law (45 credits). The additional 45 credits of taught modules can be in this area or can be unrelated and therefore selected from the full list of LLM modules.

Note: Not all of the modules listed will be available in any one year and semesters listed can be subject to change. Any modules not available in the forthcoming academic session will be marked as soon as this information is confirmed by teaching academics.

Certain combinations of modules may be restricted or required – see the individual module description for more details. These are also subject to change but will be confirmed prior to module selection.
