Program description

MA Law

This programme is an accelerated, fast-track, senior status postgraduate degree in law. The curriculum builds on the fact that you have already benefited from a university-level education so you can graduate in just 21 months, rather than the three years it would normally take to obtain an LLB.

Carefully structured to cover the foundation areas of legal knowledge and to develop core legal skills, our MA also provides an opportunity for further specialist study. This means you can graduate with a deeper understanding of law and legal reasoning than can be obtained in a one-year GDL (Graduate Diploma in Law) - and access a wider range of career paths.

The MA will be recognised as a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) for individuals accepting an offer before Autumn 2021 who can take the traditional route to qualification - completing the Legal Practice Course (LPC) following graduation. After this time, graduates will need to take the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE). The route to qualification for barristers has already changed.

Admission requirements

An upper second-class honours degree (or equivalent qualification) in any discipline.

English language requirements

If English is not your first language, you need to meet this profile level: Profile B
