This programme is specifically designed for students who already hold a first degree in a subject other than Law. The programme offers non-law graduates the chance to obtain a postgraduate qualification that will exempt them from the Common Professional Examination. The MA in Law is a qualifying law degree, so you can go straight on to the appropriate vocational stage of legal training once you have successfully completed the programme. As the programme is run over two years, instead of the more usual one year, you will acquire a more in-depth knowledge of the law over a much wider range of legal subjects.
Entry Requirements We welcome students from all over the world to study on this programme.You will normally need an Upper-Second class degree or the international equivalent. This can be in any discipline. If your first language is not English, and you have not studied at degree level in English before, we require a qualification in English, currently IELTS 7.0 with a minimum of 6.0 in each component.

You will also be asked to select three option modules to choose from a wide range of legal subjects on offer. This will give you the chance to focus on the subjects that interest you.
