This course will equip you with a sound understanding of the ways in which law and legal knowledge form part of the political, cultural and economic fabric of society.
The MRes can provide you with advanced skills in legal research methods and analysis of law and legal issues. The course has an emphasis on socio-legal research and candidates are encouraged to explore the application of law and legal research in society. You will have access to facilities and advanced training in the Graduate School, and benefit from links with the PhD community.
This MRes provides ideal preparation for entry to a PhD.
Please note that all modules are subject to change.
WHAT CAREER CAN YOU HAVE?
A postgraduate law degree will open many doors not only in specialised areas of employment, such as law firms, European and intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), but also in academia (with further postgraduate study), the media (journalism and broadcasting), the civil service, and other branches of public service.
Graduates from our LLM course have gone on to work for various national and international law firms, as lawyers and as in-house legal counsel for large multinational companies in the UK and abroad, as well as international organisations and NGOs. A good proportion of our recent graduates are working with the European Union, the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the International Police (INTERPOL), amongst others.
You are normally required to have a good undergraduate Honours degree (or equivalent from a university outside the UK). If you have other qualifications and a number of years' relevant work experience then you also be eligible to apply. Standard requirement is a 2:1 or higher in an undergraduate degree. However, our participants come with a variety of relevant legal and non-legal experience and all applicants are considered on individual merit.
