About the MSc programme

The MSc Law and Accounting was the first of its kind in the UK and it is unmatched in the international, comparative and interdisciplinary approach that it offers.

This programme is jointly offered by the Department of Law and the Department of Accounting. The Department of Law is the UK's number one legal research institution and is an exceptionally diverse, dynamic and inspiring place to study. Meanwhile, the Department of Accounting is one of the leading groups in the world for teaching and research on the economic, institutional and organisational aspects of accounting and financial management. Drawing on the resources of both departments, this interdisciplinary programme is aimed at qualified lawyers, accountants and also other suitably qualified individuals. 

MSc in Law and Accounting is a full/part-time interdisciplinary programme aimed at qualified lawyers, accountants and also other suitably qualified individuals. It comprises four elements: a core compulsory course, a Law course, and one Accounting course (the choice of each depending upon your specialist background) and a further option in a relevant field.

The programme offers the highest quality of teaching in small group seminar settings. Teaching is provided by leading international and UK academics. Our teaching combines views and experiences from different disciplinary traditions and jurisdictions. This ensures that what you learn at the LSE is relevant to academic study and practice in any jurisdiction.

You will benefit from being members of a small core group of around 30 students while at the same participating in the LLM student community and in the graduate student community associated within the Accounting Department.
