Law (General)

This course is intended to give the widest possible choice from our range of modules and allows students to make up their own portfolio of topics to suit their own needs or interests. It is possible to combine 1 or more modules on commercial matters, human rights, European integration, public international law and legal research to meet specialist interests or the needs of niche career plans. This might be of particular help to someone planning a career in non-specialist legal practice or in widely based legal policy oriented organisations whether commercial, NGO or government based.

Entry requirements

Candidates should normally have a 1st or good 2nd Class Honours degree in law or an equivalent degree where law is a substantial element or an equivalent degree in an appropriate discipline. Relevant professional experience post-graduation is given due credit in considering entry requirements.

Course modules

Students take a compulsory module entitled academic writing for postgraduates in law. Optional modules are then chosen from a wide range, and students are required to complete a dissertation.

Assessment methods

Most modules are assessed by written coursework, although other forms of assessment may be used as well. Students also complete a dissertation over the summer months.
