Insurance law is a topic of major importance to private individuals and the commercial sector alike, but is researched or taught at only a very small number of universities in the UK and other common law jurisdictions. Insurance law is a complex and intriguing subject that is fascinating to study and offers a multitude of rewarding career prospects. The University of Southampton Law School is home to several academics whose primary research interest is insurance law. It is also home to the largest community of post-graduate researchers in insurance law in the UK, and insurance contract law has been offered as a subject at undergraduate level since 2011. The new LLM stream in insurance law offers the opportunity to spend a year studying insurance law in depth and to reflect upon the interaction of insurance law with other aspects of a business.
The programme consists of four modules and a dissertation, written in summer. Two of the modules are mandatory: Insurance Law (LAWS 6099) and Marine Insurance (LAWS 6065). The other two modules are selected by the student from among a wide range of options of full year LLM modules.
