As far as my knowledge goes, I can say that no specific LLM programme in Law of Contract is offered by any UK university.

You may have to look particularly at the LLM in Commercial Law Programmes of many universities, where courses in some aspects or others of Contract Law are available. For example, Edinbugh's LLM in Commercial Law offers a course in Contract Law in Europe, and at Bristol its LLM in Commercial Law not only features a course in International Law of Contract but also allows you to take a foundational course "Law of Contract" as one of your LLM coursework options (I understand that this is an undergraduate course that undergraduate and postgraduate students study together)

I doubt there are too many 'Contract Law' LLMs as it would be hard to get a full course out of just the one subject. As indicated by tnuchpiam, Edinburgh's course does offer European Contract Law which will cover all of the basics, and then some, and has a great faculty, including Hector MacQueen. As far as the other courses within the Commercial Law LLM, contracts will be discussed pursuant to the topic taken. Very standard for the topic. Banking and Finance Law, Commercial Agency Law, Data Protection and Information Privacy, and International Commercial Arbitration will all have aspects of contract included as the law of contract relates to each topic. The key is to take modules that interest you because contract law without context can only entertain for a limited time. Best of luck!
