The MSc Law and Accounting was the first of its kind in the UK and is unmatched in the international, comparative and interdisciplinary approach that it offers.
LSE 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.
Our teaching combines views and experiences from different disciplinary traditions and jurisdictions. This ensures that what you learn at 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.
Our graduates go on to careers in a number of roles such as: senior associates, in-house counsel, lawyers working for regulators, traders, banking analysts, regulatory accountants, auditors, consultants and forensic accountants.
