Entry requirements

Applicants for the LLM taught programmes should normally hold a minimum of a 2:1 class Honours Law Degree (BA or LLB) from a UK university. Applicants with degrees from institutions outside the UK will have their applications considered on an individual, but comparable basis (see the International web pages for details of entry requirements by country). All applicants are required to supply: a completed application form, proof of qualifications and two references (one of which, as a minimum, must be academic). Applicants are considered on the basis of academic ability and potential and other relevant considerations are also taken into account. Applicants who have marginally missed the benchmark indicated above, are considered on a discretionary basis.
