The UOL postgraduate laws programmes are conducted through University College London and Queen Mary UOL, which are rated as among the top 10 law faculties in the United Kingdom.  The programmes offer a wide choice of subjects and specialisations.  These programmes are flexible, as Members will be able to earn their postgraduate qualifications on a progressive basis.  Once enrolled, Members will receive complete learning materials, including up-to-date syllabi, study guides, textbooks, readers, access to the online library, eCampus, annual recent developments, past year examination questions, and skill guides.  This will allow Members to determine how to pace themselves through the postgraduate programmes.

Members can choose to register for individual modules (for professional development purposes), the PG Cert (5 modules), the PG Dip (10 modules), or the LLM (4 courses composed of 16 modules).

Assessments will be conducted in May and October each year in Malaysia, and Members can choose to register for any number of modules for each examination.  The assessment will require Members to answer one out of two questions in a 45-minute examination for each module assessed.
