University of Bristol


This programme is an accelerated, fast-track, senior status postgraduate degree in law. The curriculum builds on the fact that you will have already benefited from a university-level education by enabling you to acquire a qualifying law degree in only 21 months, rather than the three years it would normally take to obtain an LLB. 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. Please visit the Law School's MA in Law webpage for more information. 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. Lots more information about the School is available on our 'Why Bristol Law School?' webpage, which includes short videos.

Course modules

There are four core units in year one, which are assessed by examination and/or essay. There will also be Introduction to Law lectures and seminars at the beginning of the degree. Year two includes three core units plus a further optional unit of your choice. Visit our programme catalogue for full details of the structure and unit content for our MA in Law. (
