Course content

The PgC in Agricultural Law provides a firm basis for specialism for rural professionals such as chartered surveyors, solicitors, accountants and rural business consultants, whether as an introduction or as Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for those with experience. The modules earn CPD points for solicitors and other professionals.

Module options include those providing the necessary legal foundations for practice and covering the all-important areas of land law, agricultural, commercial and residential tenancies, the UK planning system and taxation computation and planning. The options choices enable you to tailor the programme to your own requirements.

How will it benefit me?

Completion of a PgC in Agricultural Law will give students a valuable specialism allowing them to more closely understand and address clients’ needs in the rural environment. The specialist options in Planning, Taxation and Land Law are underpinned by the development of post-graduate level study skills and a more general introduction to law in the Machinery of Government module. The course will aid students' effectiveness in the workplace, or in further studies, in developing their skills in accessing and preparing legal materials and in solving legal problems.
