Law (General)

This programme builds on the School of Law's experience in providing postgraduate legal education at Master's level. Studying over one or two years, you will have an opportunity to tailor your programme of studies to your own professional or research interests. A personal supervisor will help you choose your best path through a wide range of options. If you so wish, your personal supervisor will also provide you with support if you undertake a research dissertation option. Highlights - We are among the top 10 law schools in the UK and in the top three in London in the Times Higher Education 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) rankings. - The School is the home of Birkbeck Law Press and publishes Law and Critique: The International Journal of Critical Legal Thought. You can also take advantage of the rich research collections nearby, including those of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, Senate House Library, the British Library of Political and Economic Science (LSE Library) and the British Library. - Applicants with a strong academic background may be eligible to apply for AHRC/ESRC awards (UK and EU-based applicants only). Candidates with an outstanding academic record who demonstrate high potential for strong performance on one of our Master's degrees can apply for School of Law Postgraduate Fee Awards.
