Graduates from our programmes have gone on to work in various capacities, in major national and international law firms, as in-house lawyers, in international organizations in UK and abroad. While many law graduates take professional exams in law and go on to practise law either in the UK or abroad, many others pursue alternative careers. A postgraduate law degree will open many doors not only in specialised areas of employment, such as law firms, European and intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations, but also in academia (with further postgraduate study), the media (journalism and broadcasting), the civil service, and other branches of public service.
You are normally required to have a good undergraduate Honours degree (or equivalent from a university outside the UK). If you have other qualifications and a number of years' relevant work experience then you also be eligible to apply
We encourage applications from a non-law background and all applications will be assessed on their merit.
