What is the LLM in Law & Social Justice?
The LLM is a new taught Masters degree offered by the School of Law at the University of Leeds and delivered by the Centre for Law and Social Justice and the Disability Law Hub.
You will develop the necessary tools for challenging a wide range of structural inequalities and social injustices. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the degree draws upon different disciplines to highlight diverse understandings of justice and equality. As such, the Masters programme is ideal for advancing careers in healthcare, social work, law and policy development, with further room for specialisation through our range of optional modules.
Why take the LLM in Law & Social Justice?
At the University of Leeds, you will be working in partnership with world leading specialists at the cutting edge of issues in law and social justice. This partnership provides you with excellent guidance and expertise, as well as access to a research culture that you will have an active role in shaping as part of the LLM. The School has first-class facilities and skills development. In 2017 we were University of the Year in The Times and The Sunday Times' Good University Guide.
Teaching on the LLM is provided primarily through the Centre for Law & Social Justice, the Disability Law Hub and the Vulnerability and the Human Condition Initiative. Your work will be situated at the heart of these world leading research networks which are described in more detail below.
What is the Centre for Law & Social Justice?

The Centre's three strategic themes relate to Accessing and Enacting Justice; Sustainable Communities and Social Movements; and Health, Embodiment and Justice. Internationally recognised scholars from the Centre work on a range of important issues including those relating to race, indigeneity, gender, trans, intersex, disability, children, age, sexuality and mental health.
