King's College London & IBA Executive LLM

A unique opportunity to learn with, and from, the best
The International Bar Association and King’s College London are collaborating to offer an elite, professional LLM. Our advanced program brings together diverse legal perspectives and expertise from around the world. Together, we confront some of the world’s most challenging legal issues; while bolstering your soft skills, important for leaders; and further integrating commercial and policy insights. We also help you to improve your international professional network. Our program's flexibility allows you to do all of this while continuing to advance your career.
This two-year, advanced Master of Laws is for collaborative, ethical, visionary lawyers from law firms, in-house or regulators (including competition authorities and tribunals), keen to build on their achievements. Our focus is on more senior lawyers, with approximately seven years of professional experience.
Through our unique course, participants engage with KCL's world-renowned authorities in Competition law, Finance law or International Dispute Resolution. A module in Transnational law encourages students to employ the gaps between jurisdictions, to benefit their 'clients'. Together, we combine insights in these areas with legal, commercial and policy perspectives in various sectors (small, focused teams select one of: Energy and Resources; Technology-based Enterprises; Major Projects; and Healthcare and Life Sciences). In advanced soft skills tutorials, we practice negotiation, leadership and difficult conversations, replicating the challenging environments that students confront every day. Finally, electives from beyond law, inspire participants to better understand the world in which firms operate, this includes: risk management, ethical decisions for multi-nationals and decision-making under conditions of uncertainty. All modules bridge theory and practice, bringing theoretical insights alive through real-world, practical case studies (often developed with influential IBA practitioners), and the shared experiences of the participants themselves.
The foundations of this part-time, Master of Laws are primarily delivered online. This gives you the flexibility to fit your study around your work commitments, while allowing us to deliver advanced content to you anywhere in the world. Five mandatory, London-based immersive weekends (three in the first year and two in the second year) build upon these foundations supporting you as you broaden, deepen and enrich your knowledge. Simultaneously, these collaborations enable your international, professional network to expand and bloom.
