University of Warwick, School of Law Masters Degrees

We have 7 University of Warwick, School of Law Masters Degrees

The Law School:

Warwick Law School pioneered the study of law in its social, political and economic context. The School’s research follows many tracks, emphasising historical, international, comparative, theoretical and cross-cultural approaches. Its contextual approach encompasses criminal, commercial, corporate, environmental and human rights law. Interdisciplinary strengths include, law and development, law and gender and law and humanities. Our research underpins how we teach, leading to distinctive research-led modules at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Our graduates are sought after for their strengths in both legal doctrine and in thinking about law imaginatively and contextually. The desirability of these skills is reflected in our graduates’ high employment rates.

Postgraduate Study:

From the first intake of students at Warwick Law School in 1968, postgraduate legal education has played a central role in the school’s life. Our approach to legal education is contextual, critical and global. Our teaching, as well as providing students with a solid foundation in the technical aspects of the law, examines law and legal institutions within a wider context. It encourages students to consider the social, economic, political and philosophical dimensions of the law. This wider perspective enables students to develop a critical understanding of the role of law, thus providing them with the necessary tools to understand, promote and respond to legal change in the private and public sectors and in the global arena. Given prevailing global conditions, our contextual approach necessarily involves making students aware of developments beyond the narrow confines of individual nation states. The Warwick approach to legal education is internationally recognised as innovative and has achieved the highest ratings at the national level.

Members of staff teaching on our programmes have vast experience in their respective fields and many are engaged in collaborative research with academic institutions worldwide, assisting governments, advising international organisations, and participating in the work of NGOs. These activities greatly contribute towards enhancing the learning environment of our postgraduate students.
