Course summary

The Magister Juris (MJur) is a world-renowned taught graduate course in law, designed to serve outstanding law students from civil law backgrounds. The academic standard is significantly higher than that required in a first law degree, and only those with outstanding first law degrees are admitted. All options are taught by a combination of seminars and tutorials apart from the dissertation option, which involves one-to-one sessions with an assigned supervisor. All course options are examined by timed examinations at the end of the course - with the exception of the Jurisprudence and Political Theory option, which is examined by assessed essay, and the dissertation option.

MJur graduates pursue a range of careers after completion of the degree. Many enter legal practice, either as solicitors or barristers and legal advocates. Others enter government service of various sorts as legal advisors or in related roles. A significant number will proceed to the MPhil and DPhil, and thenceforth into an academic career. The University of Oxford has an excellent careers service with which the department has close ties. The Careers Service organises a number of events of specific interest to students wishing to pursue a career in law, and offers one-to-one advice from members of staff with knowledge and experience specific to the legal sector. The Law Faculty has an extensive network of relationships within the legal profession and each year offers a number of talks and events run by law firms and barristers’ chambers.
