You’ll begin your programme with an intensive, one-week induction on the common law designed to help you to familiarise yourself with the legal system of England and Wales at postgraduate level.

You’ll gain access to the specialist legal knowledge and practical know-how that will be essential for your professional life, from academics working at the cutting edge of research and scholarship in a range of commercial and corporate law disciplines.
