Demonstrate your aptitude for legal research and develop a specialist knowledge in a specific aspect of law with this specialist research degree.

If you work in the legal profession, a masters qualification can contribute to your professional development. On this course you choose to research an area of law which means you can specialise in a field and enhance your career prospects.

If you work with, or have an interest in, law, it is likely to boost your employability in an increasingly competitive market. It is a benefit if you are looking to join the legal profession as a solicitor or barrister and want to stand out from the crowd of undergraduates.

You choose the area of research for your thesis, although we are available to provide guidance. It is ideal if you want to become a specialist in a particular area of law or to develop your interest in a specific legal topic. You develop your research skills as well as the ability to produce in-depth and persuasive academic writing.

During the course you work largely independently but you are guided by an experienced supervisor in a supportive environment. You can access legal materials in our dedicated law library in the learning centre, which is open 24-hours a day during term time. Our IT systems are set up so that most of your learning and research can be done anywhere off campus where you have access to a suitable internet connection.

Course design

The content of this course depends on the particular area of law you choose to study. It is agreed by your supervisor at the start of the course based on the pre-entry submissions you have made.

Successful completion of the course requires the submission of a 30,000 thesis and an oral or approved alternative examination.

Our staff have particular areas of expertise where they can offer supervision for study at masters level. See our staff pages for further details – https://www.shu.ac.uk/about-us/academic-departments/law-and-criminology/staff.

Assessment

Assessment is via the submission of a 30,000 word thesis, and a short viva examination, on an agreed legal topic. 

Employability

Following this degree you may choose to pursue a law-related career in places such as • the Crown Prosecution Service • Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs • the police service • the Trading Standards Institute • youth offending teams • advice centres.

A masters qualification in law is widely respected across many professions and therefore your career options can be varied. Opportunities can be found in • academia • politics • journalism • social work • the civil service.

You may find your skills also translate well in business and commerce within national or multi-national companies.

Holding a masters degree is now a significant requirement for study at doctoral level. It provides a recognised pathway to the PhD route and a research-based masters qualification provides an opportunity for extended and in-depth study which is lost in traditional taught-based degrees.

About the course

The Legal Practice Course trains you to masters standard, allowing you to develop an excellent knowledge and understanding of legal practice, whilst also providing you with the vocational qualification you need in order to go on to practise as a solicitor.

Highly regarded by the profession and consistently recognised for the quality of its teaching, the course is part of a top-ranking Russell Group University within a vibrant city, and yet is small enough to remain personal.

The MA in Legal Practice is very much a hands-on course, using case studies and files based on those used in practice. We ask you to research and acquire knowledge, put that into context, identify issues and place the client at the centre of the problem. Upon completion of this vocational aspect of the course, you then go on to submit a dissertation.

Students who choose not to submit a dissertation will be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma (which satisfies the vocational requirements).
You can opt to take the course part-time, in which case you are only required to come in for approximately six hours per week – allowing you the rest of your time to gain valuable work experience, something which is highly regarded by employers.
