The structured LLM programmes are presented in the form of compulsory seminars on a Friday and Saturday. We encourage students to complete this qualification within one year (usually full time). You can also complete it part time but must be very disciplined and motivated and follow a strict study programme. You may complete the qualification over a period of two years - just keep in mind that the full LLM fees (registration and tuition) are payable every year of registration.
Please note that a Research Methodology Seminar is compulsory for all accepted postgraduate students. This course was presented during February of each year. Information about this seminar will be communicated to you in due course, after your application has been approved.
The closing date for applications is 31 October of each year.
Please apply as soon as possible.
