Entry requirements

For admission to the programme we would normally expect that you hold a 2:1 Honours degree (or equivalent) in Law (or a degree with a substantial legal component). While we normally only accept applicants who meet this criteria, if you have a high 2:2 or equivalent, are coming from a different academic background which is equivalent to degree level, or have relevant work experience in legal professions, we would welcome your application.

Applicants without a Law degree. 

We welcome applications from students with other qualifications or degrees in an area appropriate to the LLM programme. These may include Social Sciences (eg Politics, International Relations, International Studies), Humanities, Accountancy or Business Studies. Please note this list is not exhaustive and every application will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
