The University of Law
Our MA Law is designed for non-law graduates who want to gain a legal qualification at Masters Level. Building on your skills learnt during your undergraduate degree, you will study the principles of legal research, critical evaluation and academic writing, before undertaking your own independent research project. This qualification gives you the opportunity to progress to vocational study to become a qualified solicitor or barrister within the UK, whilst also providing an internationally recognised Master's award, which is highly attractive to employers in a variety of disciplines. This makes it the perfect choice if you want to keep your career options open.
MA: You must possess an undergraduate degree (or equivalent) at 2:1 or above in any discipline. Overseas graduates and mature non-graduates: Please send your qualifications through to the Admissions team who can advise on your eligibility for the course. If you decide you wish to proceed onto the BPTC, please apply for a Certificate of Academic Standing from the Bar Standards Board (BSB). A sufficient command of English is required to successfully complete the course. Please note that students providing a degree from a UK university as proof of English must have studied the whole degree in the UK. If you have completed a degree outside the UK and you do not come from a majority English speaking country: A certified copy of any document that proves that you are qualified in English at CEFR level B2 or above in each of the four components of language learning.
Compulsory online pre-course study programme on legal method (50 hours). Foundation modules: Public law; European union law; criminal law; tort; contract law; land law; equity and trusts law. Independent Research Project module. All modules must be passed in order to obtain the award.
Examinations: Legal Method has a 30 minute multiple-choice open book exam. Each of the seven foundation subjects have a three hour closed book exam where students must answer three questions from a choice of six. The Legal Research and Independent Project module is assessed by a 6,000 word legal essay. Please note that a Masters Award requires a minimum 50% pass mark, as opposed to the 40% pass mark required for the GDL, which is an undergraduate level qualification.
