Entry requirements

For entry, applicants would normally have one of the following:

  • A graduate with a 2:2 undergraduate honours degree or its equivalent in Law, Business or Human Resource Management
  • A professional qualification in relevant subject discipline
  • Applicants with relevant work experience will be considered on a case by case basis

Those that are legally qualified have a slightly different Course content than those who are not. Legally qualified normally means those who are practising solicitors, advocates or barristers or have completed an LLB in the last 5 years. Those who have completed a British LLM or a Law BA may also be considered as legally qualified depending on the content of that course. This determination is within the discretion of the course leader.
