This programme is an accelerated, fast-track, senior status postgraduate degree in law. Students will acquire a qualifying law degree in only 21 months, rather than the three years it would normally take to obtain an LLB. Students will graduate with a deeper understanding of law and legal reasoning than can be obtained in a one-year GDL (Graduate Diploma in Law). The programme is carefully structured to cover the foundation areas of legal knowledge and to develop your core legal skills, while providing an opportunity for further specialist study. The MA in Law is recognised by the Law Society and the Bar Council as a qualifying law degree for practice in England and Wales, and is recognised in other jurisdictions. The MA in Law programme is suitable for individuals wishing to become solicitors or barristers in the UK, and as lawyers in other jurisdictions. Some graduates work in private practice, as in-house legal counsel for businesses or in the public sector. Others act as advisers in international organisations such as the European Union or the United Nations, or for international NGOs and other agencies. A number of graduates go on to further study in the UK or overseas.
