Key Modules

The expertise our students gain on our LLMs makes them desirable candidates in a number of law-related fields.

While many of our students specialise to enhance their legal practice work, others are sought after by government agencies, the private commercial sector (such as in-house lawyers) and non-governmental organisations where a background in commercial law is valued.

As a research-led school, we attract a robust number of candidates seeking to continue in further studies to pursue an academic career in the UK or abroad.

At Brunel we provide many opportunities and experiences within your degree programme and beyond – work-based learning, professional support services, volunteering, mentoring, sports, arts, clubs, societies, and much, much more – and we encourage you to make the most of them, so that you can make the most of yourself.
