Course Details

Our MA Law gives you the opportunity to learn the practical legal skills of analysis and critical evaluation, alongside a range of transferable skills such as research and presentation skills, in a practical and interactive way. To ensure that you have a smooth transition from your previous non-law studies, we’ve designed this course to include a pre-course programme where you will be able to get support in learning about legal method. This compulsory addition to the course means that you will be ready to get started on your legal studies as soon as the course begins.

Our structured course is delivered by qualified lawyers either face-to-face on campus or online. On completion of the course, you’ll have the opportunity to progress your studies to become a solicitor or barrister in the UK, whilst obtaining a Master’s award, which will be highly attractive to employers in a variety of disciplines. This course is the perfect choice if you wish to keep your career options open.

When you study the MA Law with us you will:

  • Be taught by subject matter experts, former and current practitioners and research and teaching focused academics
  • Focus on legal practice, not just theory
  • Benefit from strategic partnerships with firms, regulators and accreditation bodies
  • Improve your employability by gaining important transferable skills and mapping your career with our careers team.
