Masters in Law

The MLaw is designed for UK non-law graduates and for law and non-law graduates from other countries who wish to acquire a thorough grounding in law. It also provides a qualifying law degree for legal practice in Northern Ireland, and in England and Wales (though international applicants who wish to pursue a career in legal practice should check with the relevant jurisdiction before applying, or contemplate the 2 –year LLB, senior status degree). The specially devised curriculum builds on the fact that students have already benefited from a university level education by enabling them to acquire a qualifying law degree in 2 years, rather than the three years it would normally take to obtain an LLB. The degree offers the highest quality of teaching, delivered through intensive small-group weekly seminars.

  • The MLaw is an accelerated, fast-track, two year, full-time senior status postgraduate degree in law.
  • The programme delivers a Qualifying Law Degree for entry to vocational training in England & Wales and Northern Ireland.
  • The programme is designed for graduates in a discipline other than Law who wish to obtain a Law degree for professional practice or in aid of other career goals.
  • The programme is delivered through a series of taught modules and culminates in the submission of a dissertation on an original topic.
