Course Summary


Convert to study Law and prepare for you career in the legal profession

Law exists to regulate pretty much everything we do, which is why it remains such a relevant and fascinating subject to study.

Our Master of Laws (LLM) degree will enable students who have achieved a degree in a subject other than Law to study the Foundations of Legal Knowledge.

This will enable you to meet the academic stage to qualify as a Barrister and provide legal understanding for the first Solicitors’ Qualifying Examination (SQE), for those who want to progress to a career in the legal profession.

Choose your route

You can choose to study our LLM Law Conversion course with or without the preparation for the SQE exam.

You will need to indicate when applying which route you would like to take as it will affect the cost of your course.

The Course

Study the foundations of legal knowledge

Taught in small groups you will develop your research, academic writing, critical thinking, and employability skills.
