You should have or expect to obtain a degree from a recognised University or equivalent awarding institution at second class honours level or above. Exceptionally, the requirements of a second class honours degree may be waived where past experience has made you suitable for the programme.
International students and other non-standard applications will require a certificate of academic standing from either the Solicitors' Regulation Authority (SRA) or the Bar Standards Board (BSB).
Months of entry
- A flexible qualifying law masters degree offered with different study patterns: full time completed in 1 year on Mondays and Wednesdays, or part time completed over 2 years by day release (year 1 on Wednesdays, year 2 on Mondays).
- Full time applications must be made via the Central Applications Board. Part time applications must be made through the LJMU online application form.
- Completion of this degree will enable you to progress onto the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC).
- Open to non-law graduates who wish to convert a degree into a qualifying legal qualification.
- Excellent preparation for a professional legal career as well as opportunities in public services and management and for those students wishing to proceed further in academia by enrolling onto a PhD.
