Why Glasgow?

The title of LLM is awarded after one year of study in Glasgow and certifies knowledge of legal disciplines at the specialist degree level. The LLM is a qualification appreciated in the legal professions market and by Italian and foreign employers, in particular in the specific fields of specialisation, as, among other things, it proves that a student has been able to complete a course of law studies completely in English and at one of the best law schools in the UK.

The title of LLB, in the context of the cooperation in question, is obtained after a two-year course of study in Glasgow (instead of three as normally required for LLB programs) and is equivalent to a Bachelor's degree in Law.

What is the added value?

In Italy and abroad, a double degree is always an added value. Not only experts say it, it is enough to browse through the job offers to realise that companies and organisations are looking for international profiles and open-mindness, able to work in multicultural teams and to face ever new global challenges.
Graduates and students who will achieve the single-cycle degree in Law by March have the opportunity to be admitted to attend an LLM Program offered by the University of Glasgow benefiting from a 40% reduction on the International fees.
