Course content

Build on your degree success and immerse yourself in a project which is important to you. A ResM in law will develop your research-skills as well as enabling your own independent research. The law group has diverse interests with specific strengths in intellectual property, cyberlaw, discrimination, human rights, family, legal theory, legal history, cultural heritage and environmental law. Our staff and School research pages will provide further insight into how we could match your ambition.

A research masters degree incorporates both taught elements and an extended research project which culminates in the submission of a thesis. This programme is governed by research degree regulations and you engage fully in professional and research skills development.

Information for international students

Please view the country specific pages for further information regarding the equivalency of your degree. International applicants will be required to provide evidence of their English language ability, for example by achieving an IELTS score of 6.5 overall (with a minimum of 5.5 in each element) or equivalent, see our English language requirements. Pre-sessional English language courses are available if you do not meet these requirements.
