Entry requirements

You should hold an Honours degree (Upper or Lower Second Class Honours degree, with average of 55 per cent or above) in Law, or a degree with a skills profile that shows an aptitude for legal study, but we will consider mature applicants without standard qualifications who have significant professional experience in the relevant field.

This course combines academic analysis and commercial practice elements of entertainment law in an international perspective. The diverse nature of entertainment law will enable you to follow a number of relevant specialisms, all of which are underpinned by issues of contract and intellectual property.

There have been many successful international graduates on the course from all over the world. It will give you the opportunity to explore new ideas, thoughts and academic experiences within a supportive environment.

The course aims to develop your understanding of how key fields within the entertainment industries operate, to assess the impact of the law upon them, and give you the practical skills necessary to succeed in a career in entertainment and media law.
