Course Summary

This programme builds on the School of Law's experience in providing postgraduate legal education at Master's level. Studying over one or two years, you will have an opportunity to tailor your programme of studies to your own professional or research interests. A personal supervisor will help you choose your best path through a wide range of options. If you so wish, your personal supervisor will also provide you with support if you undertake a research dissertation option.

Assessment is an integral part of your university studies and usually consists of a combination of coursework and examinations, although this will vary from course to course - on some of our courses, assessment is entirely by coursework.

Graduates go in to careers in the legal profession, government, the private sector, and research or journalism. Possible professions include barrister or solicitor, researcher, or journalist. This degree can also be useful in becoming a chartered legal executive, licensed conveyancer, human resources officer, or patent attorney.
