Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Designed to be as flexible as possible to meet your needs, this course and all assessments are delivered entirely online with no live classes for you to attend.

If you have passed the Graduate Diploma in Law, the Legal Practice course, the Bar Vocational course or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC), you can study this top-up course from anywhere in the world to obtain a masters by writing a dissertation on a specific area of law.

Training in research methods is provided and you will be in regular contact with your dissertation supervisor. If you aspire to a career teaching law or want to work in a specialised area of law or business, this course will help you gain the relevant expertise.

We offer dissertation supervision in a broad range of legal subjects, including business law, international law, criminal justice, employment law, equalities and discrimination law, EU law, human rights, intellectual property, professional practice and professional ethics. If you are interested in another area, we will be happy to discuss this with you further.

Changes to legal education and training

Legal education and training has been subject to a detailed review by professional regulators in the legal sector. The review has examined the routes to qualification as a solicitor or barrister.

The Bar Standards Board (BSB) no longer requires the study of a 'Qualifying Law Degree' (QLD), however, the study of what are referred to as the 'legal foundations of knowledge' is still required before the vocational stage of bar training. Our GDL course and our LLM version meet this requirement.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
