This exciting new programme provides students with a world-class legal education which prepares them for the global and international environment in which they will provide legal advice.
The JD is a first professional doctorate degree required for licensure in the field of law. The programme delivers a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) to graduates from a discipline other than law and provides the necessary professional exemptions to allow holders to apply for the professional stage in England and Wales, North America, Hong Kong and Australia.
The JD is taught via intensive, small-group teaching, with each student expected to participate fully in each module. Other forms of delivery will occasionally be utilised, including seminar questions prepared in advance of the class, group and independent work in class, and short lectures to aid students’ understanding and knowledge of the subject matter. Students will be taught as a single group and there is a supportive learning environment.
Students take ten compulsory taught modules, and in the final year write a dissertation module and taught modules from the wide selection of existing postgraduate modules on offer in the School.
Students also have the opportunity in Year 3, or to spend a semester of Year 3 studying at another University from a selection of international study abroad partners.
Scholarship opportunities are available from the Law School; for details please contact the School ([email protected]) or visit our website.
