Course content

Law is a highly competitive field and a masters qualifying law degree (or a postgraduate diploma in law) will help you stand out from the crowd. This conversion course combines all the core modules required by the relevant professional bodies in law and will prepare you to take the next step towards becoming a solicitor or a barrister.

You will study legal theory and how to apply it in practice and your independent research project will give you the opportunity to focus on an area of law that interests you. Taught by experienced tutors, including trained solicitors and barristers with significant professional expertise in all areas of law, the breadth of expertise in the department will ensure you receive specialist support on a wide variety of topics, from medical negligence to terrorism and from intellectual property to public law.

Teaching will be delivered in small face-to-face classes combined with online lectures that can be accessed at a time and place to fit with your busy schedule.
