Course Details

Our MA Law gives you the opportunity to learn the practical legal skills of analysis and critical evaluation, alongside a range of transferable skills such as research and presentation skills, in a practical and interactive way. To ensure that you have a smooth transition from your previous non-law studies, we’ve designed this course to include a pre-course programme where you will be able to get support in learning about legal method.
