Course Summary

This MA is designed for graduates who don’t have a law degree. You’ll develop an in-depth knowledge of the English legal system.

Course description

This masters qualification covers the seven foundations of legal knowledge subjects as well as the skills associated with graduate legal work such as legal research.

The seven foundations of legal knowledge subjects are:

  • criminal law
  • equity and trusts
  • law of the European Union
  • contract
  • tort
  • property/land law
  • public law

If you’re not a law graduate, or you have a law degree from outside England and Wales, you’ll acquire a more in-depth knowledge of the law over a much wider range of legal subjects than is offered on one year Graduate Diploma in Law programmes. This extra depth and understanding will give you a head start in your career as a solicitor or barrister.
