The law school
The Law School is one of the UK’s top law schools and has a reputation not only for quality teaching and research in both the core subjects essential for entry into the legal profession, but also in a wider range of topics, such as construction law, criminology, human rights law and information technology and telecommunications law.
In addition, the Law School houses the Centre for Law, Computers and Technology, as well as the Centre for Sentencing Research, and the Centre for the Study of Human Rights Law.
Entry requirements vary from program to program.
Depending on the program selected, normally applicants will have a first- or second-class Honours degree from a UK university or college (or an equivalent qualification) or relevant professional qualifications or an Honours degree in any discipline, although some law content would be useful.
Other qualifications are recognised, especially where the applicant’s work experience is relevant.
If English is not the applicant’s first language the applicant will be required to provide evidence of English language proficiency before beginning a course.
The Law School offers a number of postgraduate programs, including LL.M.’s in Construction Law, Human Rights Law, International Economic Law, International Law and Sustainable Development, and IT and Telecommunications Law.
The LLM and Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) in Information Technology and Telecommunications Law is offered by the University through internet based distance learning.
