This exciting degree is designed to enable non-law graduates to gain an exempting legal qualification at masters level.
​The degree will provide you with opportunities to broaden your legal interests, while equipping you with the skills and knowledge necessary for a rewarding future in the legal profession.

Upon completion you will have developed the skills, knowledge and confidence to study on a Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) and ultimately qualify as a solicitor or barrister.

It will also allow you to undertake a dissertation module in any area of law allowing you to pursue an academic career if you so wish.

​The course is presented via a mix of small and large group sessions and workshops. Large sessions will enable tutors to introduce legal topics, with opportunities for much more in-depth discussion and analysis in the small sessions and workshops. The format of these sessions will vary according to prescribed learning outcomes, with some being led by tutors and others being led by the students. Seminars, role-plays and presentations may also be used where appropriate, while directed study and reading will also play a role in the learning experience.
