The Ealing Law School of the University of West London has also been rated as the No. 1 modern Law School in London by Guardian University (2012).  The Ealing Law School (Law Faculty of UWL) has a long standing reputation for legal education in London for offering LLB, LLM and PhD qualifications in UK.  The school also enjoys close ties to the Middlesex Law Society (MLS) where new students can take part in the MLS Young Members Group and various communities in the Legal London.

The LL.M. programmes that are offered by UWL are the following:
  • International Business and Commercial Law
  • International Studies in  Intellectual Property Law

Following a two semester model, each programme will have specialized modules. Each module will have 60 hours of lectures and other inter-active activities. In addition, lectures on Research Methodology with tutor support will lead to the development of a 15, 000 word dissertation. The programmes are meant to be completed within one year with lectures being held on weekday evenings and on Saturday mornings and afternoons. The LL.M. in International Business and Commercial Law is by far the most popular of the programmes.

Admission to the LL.M. programmes is essentially meant for those who have a LL.B. degree from a recognized university or who have been admitted to practice law in an acceptable jurisdiction. Admission is also possible for those with appropriate academic or professional qualifications  such as CIMA/ Charted and MBA where the course of studies had included relevant legal subjects and have acquired sufficient post-qualification working experience- these applicants will be screened on a case-by-case basis. Lectures will be conducted here by visiting UWL academics as well as by leading local academics.

With the renewed interest in foreign participation in joint ventures in several areas of the country’s economy, it has become more urgent than ever before for local lawyers and professionals to broaden their horizons. The LL.M. programmes of the University of West London provide a unique opportunity for Sri Lankan lawyers and professionals who deal with legal matters to gain an insight into many areas of the law of practical relevance to their work. The programmes cover statutory, case law and regulatory developments not only in the United Kingdom and the European Union but also at the international level.

There are certain unique features about each of these post-graduate programmes, namely;
  • Internal British degree conducted on a Mirror Model : The programmes lead to an “internal” LL.M. degree being awarded by UWL conducted on a mirror model without the necessity to travel, live and study in London;
  • Visiting faculty from UWL :  Lectures are conducted jointly by academics of UWL who visit Sri Lanka each semester and by leading local academics;
  • Dual supervision of the Dissertation: Each LL.M. programme involves a series of examinations and a 15, 000 word dissertation for which a local and a foreign supervisor will help guide the students;
  • Diversified teaching methods : Besides lectures in the traditional form, simulation exercises are held to enable students to sharpen their forensic skills;
  • Blackboard student portal: Students have access to UWL’s Virtual Learning Environment which provides each week’s power point slides of lectures, e-books and other materials. There is provision for on-line submission of assignments as well.
  • Weekday evening and weekend classes: Lectures are during one weekday evening and on Saturdays, thus enabling practitioners and working people to continue to work whilst following the programme.
  • Online Library facilities and free text books -  Student will have access to the Online library material of the University West London and free text books.

The need for an international outlook for lawyers, accountants and other professionals cannot be gainsaid. Comparative law is a fascinating subject which is going through many changes all the time, responding to the changing nature of the international legal architecture. These LL.M. programmes offer a window of opportunity to follow these developments and be part of the growing international community of comparative lawyers.  More information on LLM Programmes and the Next intake commencing in May 2015 can be obtained from 0777 449955 or visit
