Postgraduate courses for non-law graduates

In general the Law Faculty's postgraduate programmes are open only to those with law degrees. Exceptionally those with outstanding degrees in other disciplines may be admitted to the BCL or MJur if they hold a professional legal qualification. Graduates in other relevant disciplines are sometimes admitted by the Law Faculty to read for research degrees in areas such as philosophy of law, criminology, and socio-legal studies. In these interdisciplinary areas you may like to make early enquiries about your particular academic profile. Visit the centres and specialisations section of this site to find the relevant contact information.

The Faculty also makes the following provision for graduates in other disciplines:

  • BA in law with senior status: a super-intensive version of our undergraduate law degree completed in two years rather than three - for outstanding graduates only.
  • Graduates in psychology, sociology and similar disciplines are accepted alongside law graduates on the MSc in Criminal Justice.
