Course content

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. Students 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. Please visit the Law School's MA in Law webpage for more information.

The MA in Law is recognised by the Law Society and the Bar Council as a qualifying law degree for practice in England and Wales, and is recognised in other jurisdictions. The Solicitors’ Regulatory Authority, the body which regulates the profession, is planning to change the path to qualification. This decision is still being negotiated, so for the latest updates please see our accreditation webpage.

For further information about the Law School, visit our Why Bristol Law School? webpage, which includes short videos.

Programme structure

There are four core units in year one, which are assessed by examination and/or essay. You will also have Introduction to Law lectures and seminars at the beginning of the degree. Year two includes three core units plus a further optional unit of your choice.

Visit our programme catalogue for full details of the structure and unit content for our MA in Law.

Careers

The MA in Law programme offers a wide choice of career paths. Graduates have gone on to qualify as solicitors or barristers in the UK, and as lawyers in other jurisdictions. Some graduates work in private practice, as in-house legal counsel for businesses or in the public sector. Others act as advisers in international organisations such as the European Union or the United Nations, or for international NGOs and other agencies. A number of graduates go on to further study in the UK or overseas.

Please visit our Careers and Employability and Student Society web pages for more information about the support and opportunities we provide during your studies.
