Non-law graduates

Non-law graduates with a minimum second class honours degree, that have also obtained a Merit (or 60 per cent) in the Common Professional Examination (CPE) or Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) recognised by the UK professional bodies, may also qualify. Non-law graduates may also be considered on the basis of exceptional professional experience (of at least five years) in a legal area or an area directly related to their programme of study.

In all cases, a full online application is required in order for a fair assessment and decision to be made. Each application is considered on its merits and on sight of full application documents.

A full and detailed CV is required for all applications and is particularly relevant where professional experience needs to be considered.

Course content

The LLM in Criminal Justice programme will allow you to gain an in depth knowledge of criminal justice systems at international, supranational and domestic levels. The programme aims to foster an understanding of the challenges criminal justice is facing at national, EU and international levels and in a comparative context; and to provide a potential route to post-graduate research in the area of criminal justice.

You will be taught by internationally recognised experts in the field of criminal justice, drawing on their research strengths and extensive knowledge of the subject area.

Your fellow students will come from the UK and more than 80 other countries, each able to draw on prior academic and in many cases professional experiences from different jurisdictions to enrich discussion and debate in class.
