If you're not a law graduate, or you have a law degree from outside England and Wales, this masters qualification will give you a qualifying law degree. You'll acquire a more in-depth knowledge of the law over a much wider range of legal subjects than is offered in the Graduate Diploma in Law. This extra depth and understanding will give you a head start in your career as a solicitor or barrister.

Examples of optional modules include: Sale of Goods; Criminal Evidence; The Law Relating to Public Companies; Medical Law; International Law.
