Key Course Facts

Course Description

Insurance is a key part of commercial law and practice. It is an enormous industry: in the UK it is second only to banking in terms of the number of employees and the revenues generated. London is one of the world’s leading centres for the industry, and, as well as hosting the head offices of many insurance companies, it is home to the Lloyd’s insurance market.

The LLM in Insurance Law was established by a leading expert in the field, Professor Philip Rawlings, with the aim of filling a significant gap in the current academic and professional training market. The programme will equip you with the knowledge, skills and practical tools needed to gain a thorough understanding of insurance law, practice and regulation.

Queen Mary University of London was the first UK university to offer a specialist LLM in Insurance Law. Insurance law modules have also proved popular among students taking other specialisms.
