School of Law
Masters in Law
pathway to professional legal practice
The MLaw is designed for UK non-law graduates and for law and non-law graduates from other countries who wish to acquire a thorough grounding in law. It also provides a qualifying law degree for legal practice in Northern Ireland, and in England and Wales (though international applicants who wish to pursue a career in legal practice should check with the relevant jurisdiction before applying, or contemplate the 2 –year LLB, senior status degree). The specially devised curriculum builds on the fact that students have already benefited from a university level education by enabling them to acquire a qualifying law degree in 2 years, rather than the three years it would normally take to obtain an LLB. The degree offers the highest quality of teaching, primarily delivered through seminars.
