Table notesThe list shows 91 of the top Masters of Laws providers: schools are categorised by region and listed alphabetically by country.

* The figures show the total number of full-time faculty working at the law school as of September 1, 2016. The numbers include all tenured and tenure-track professors, as well as full-time lecturers. They also include joint appointments with another department within the parent university, if any. The figures do not include visiting, temporary, adjunct or part-time faculty.

** The table shows the lowest total tuition fees (in local currency), for example, for local students. Please contact the school or visit its website to find out the tuition fees for international students. Please note fees may be subject to change. For some schools, part-time fees can be paid in instalments over the duration of the course.

*** If the school off ers more than one LLM, this column shows the most popular LLM based on the number of enrolments for the 2015-16 academic year. The numbers do not include continuing students.

† Depends on programme.

†† No data provided.

††† Tuition fee is €0 depending on nationality or €12,000.

‡ Students can enter directly into the second year only. The minimum study length is 11 months and minimum tuition is €400.

‡‡ The school has omitted one if its LLMs in this listing.

‡‡‡ Part-time LLM started in Sep 2016, so there is no data on this programme so far.

§ Y = yes.

§§ The numbers generally include students who started studying for their LLM in the 2015-16 academic year. The numbers do not include continuing students. Course start dates vary for each school and some have more than one start date in the year.
