The University of Johannesburg’s LLM in Banking Law programme is designed to provide students with specialist knowledge on aspects of the law that are highly relevant to the banking sector. It is designed to be completed by full-time students within one year and by part-time students over two years.
Classes or seminars in the taught modules have generally been presented in the evenings on weekdays from 18h00 to 20h00 (one class per module per week). Some classes may be arranged differently (blocked) in consultation with the class.
The minimum entry requirement is an LLB degree (or equivalent qualification) at NQF Level 7 or 8 and a minimum number of credits of 624. Candidates for admission to Master’s degrees in general need to have obtained their previous degree with an average mark of at least 65%.
Students may be selected for entry to the qualification. This selection will be based on one or more objectively justifiable and appropriate criteria. Such criteria may include the academic merit of an applicant, the relevant practical experience of an applicant and the number of students who can be effectively accommodated in a programme or module having regard to the high level of personal interaction required between Master’s students and supervisors/study leaders.
