Course content

This programme is an accelerated, fast-track, senior status postgraduate degree in Law. The curriculum builds on the fact that you will have already benefited from a university-level education by enabling you to acquire a qualifying law degree in only 21 months, rather than the three years it would normally take to obtain an LLB. Students graduate with a deeper understanding of law and legal reasoning than can be obtained in a one-year GDL (Graduate Diploma in Law).

The programme is carefully structured to cover the foundation areas of legal knowledge and to develop your core legal skills, while providing an opportunity for further specialist study.

The MA in Law is recognised by the Law Society and the Bar Council as a qualifying law degree for practice in England and Wales and is recognised in other jurisdictions. The Solicitors Regulatory Authority, the body which regulates the profession, is planning to change the path to qualification. This decision is still being negotiated, so for the latest updates please see the accreditation webpage.
