We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
This programme is an accelerated, fast-track, senior status postgraduate degree in law. The curriculum builds on the fact that you will have already benefited from a university-level education by enabling you to acquire a qualifying law degree in only 21 months, rather than the three years it would normally take to obtain an LLB. You will graduate with a deeper understanding of law and legal reasoning than can be obtained in a one-year GDL (Graduate Diploma in Law).
The programme is carefully structured to cover the foundation areas of legal knowledge and to develop your core legal skills, while providing an opportunity for further specialist study.

I was awarded a First Class Honours degree in English literature from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. I then did an MPhil in literature at Trinity College, Dublin. After this, I took a year off, to work out what I wanted to do.
It was mainly the course that made me choose Bristol. I wanted a rigorous and academically challenging degree, so that I would be more marketable to future employers. The law school is one of the most prestigious in the UK, so many accomplished people come to teach and give lectures. Being exposed to these people has been very inspiring, pushing me to aim high.
The things I like best about the university are my MA Law course which is academically demanding; you are pushed to succeed. I have learnt so much and have sharpened my thinking and research skills. I also really enjoy the diversity of the student body and have met people from so many different countries and finally the university has fabulous facilities.
I was also attracted by the city itself. It has a buzzy feel, with lots of good places to eat, as well as being very beautiful. Bristol is crammed full of excellent restaurants. I also love wandering through Clifton village, which is a gorgeous area.
After completing my course, I have been offered a training contract with one of London's most prestigious law firms. I am sure that I would not have got this had it not been for studying at Bristol.
