Thinking of studying postgraduate Law?
The School of Law provides graduate entry programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. We are just one of a just a handful of universities that offers a fast track LLB law undergraduate degree for graduates from other disciplines who wish to gain a qualifying law degree in just two years (known as a Senior Status course). Our postgraduate programmes are designed to develop your knowledge of law and most are open to those without a Law degree. We offer masters qualifications (known as LLMs) in General Law; International Commercial Law; International Human Rights Law; Public International Law; and Legal Research, as well as an MPhil and PhD programmes. The entry requirements for the Senior Status and LLM programmes are a good second class degree. Admissions for PhD and MPhil may be higher if coming straight from an undergraduate programme and usually a LLM is required.
