The Department has a long history of teaching law; it is the oldest law school in Wales and one of the oldest in the United Kingdom. The Department is located in the spacious and modern Hugh Owen Building, centrally located on the University campus. It is self-contained with lecture theatres and the purpose-built Law Library less than a minutes walk from each other. Close at hand are the vast resources of the National library of Wales which, as a copyright library, receives copies of all books published in Great Britain.
One distinctive feature of the Department, which many students comment upon, is the friendly atmosphere and sense of community, including the informal relationship which exists between staff and students.
Our masters' programmes are also available to students who have a bachelor's degree in a non-law subject, and are therefore particularly suited for those who are interested in acquiring a knowledge of the law in order to enhance and enrich their understanding of legal regulation and the involvement of the law on society more widely.We offer a range of master level schemes including:
LLM in Law-this degree will place you in the jobs market armed with impressive expertise in the latest developments in a range of law specialisms. This course will allow you to tailor your study of law entirely to your needs and interests and direct your own study amid a wide array of options, choosing from areas of law such as the environment, human rights, international business, commerce, and technology.
