Our Dual LLM degree, offered in collaboration with the Catholic University of Lyon (UCLy), provides students with a unique opportunity to conduct advanced study of international business law across two jurisdictions. Students study a set of compulsory modules in Lyon during Semester 1, and in Semester 2 will study their choice of optional modules in Maynooth (including the possibility to apply for the Placement module). All modules on the programme are taught through English. Upon completion of the programme, students will receive the M1 qualification from UCLy and the LLM qualification from Maynooth. 
 

 

The minimum entry requirement for this programme is a 2:2 overall classification in a Level 8 undergraduate degree. This degree must be in law.  

Applicants from certain non-EU countries are required to meet different minimum entrance criteria, which can be found here.

The international office will be able to advise international applications on the compatibility of their degree with these criteria – international.office@mu.ie.

Applicants who are required to demonstrate English language proficiency can find the minimum required scores in a variety of accepted tests here.

Meeting the minimum entry requirements does not guarantee an offer of entry onto this programme. Decision on admission to the programme are at the discretion of the Admission Committee.  

Applications by applicants with other types of diplomas or who do not reach this minimum level of qualifications will be determined by the Admissions Committee in line with the University’s policy on recognition of prior experiential learning, which can be accessed here.

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.

The Dual LLM programme allows students to choose from a range of postgraduate law modules with a focus on trade, enterprise or corporate activity.

Students must complete 90 credits in total – 30 credits in compulsory modules (taught in UCLy), 30 credits in optional modules (taught in MU), plus the compulsory Dissertation (30 credits).

Not all modules offered will run every year, offerings are dependent upon demand and other potential constraints. Please note that some modules will have prerequisites attached to them.

Students can elect to graduate with a Postgraduate Diploma instead of an LLM, if they find that they are unable to complete the Dissertation.

Course duration: 1 year full-time.

Holding two Masters degrees that cover two different legal systems puts students on this programme in an excellent position for pursuing any career involving multijurisdictional or comparative work. It is evidence of an ability to appreciate the connections and divergences between legal systems, and demonstrates a high capacity for adaptability and organisation.
