We offer one of the widest ranges of legal masters programmes in the UK. Our programmes offer an excellent opportunity to deepen your knowledge, whether you wish to specialise in a particular area of the law, or to pursue a broader perspective at a more advanced level. Most of our programmes can also be studied either full time over one year, or part time over two years.

The Covid-19 pandemic is having a huge impact on education across the UK, Europe and worldwide, and we understand you may be concerned about how the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak could affect your application to study with us, or any offer that you may have received from us.

We want to keep you informed and supported throughout this uncertain period, and so the University has created a microsite to provided answers to key questions. As the situation develops, we will update these with the latest information we have.
